Since 1999, Komen Tidewater has invested more than $5.5 million in the fight against breast cancer, awarding these dollars through grants to local organizations that deliver breast health services in the Tidewater service area. “We are the only breast cancer organization that has a two-fold mission. 1st is to support our local community with mammograms, diagnostics and outreach. 2nd is to fund national breast cancer research to find the cures! It is our mission to end breast cancer forever!” said Sharon Laderberg, Executive Director of Susan G. Komen Tidewater Affiliate.
