The Results Are In!

Fundraising wrapped for the 36th annual Dallas Race for the Cure in November.

Combined registration fees, individual and team fundraising, and corporate sponsorship tipped Komen Dallas County over the $1 million mark with a total of over $1.1 million raised.

The funds raised from the 2018 Race will provide life-saving breast health services to uninsured and underinsured women and men living in Dallas County, as well as breakthrough research that will one day find the cures for breast cancer.

Research Corner

Meet two incredible Komen-funded researchers – Dr. Lisa Coussens & Dr. Eric Winer, the 2018 Susan G. Komen Brinker Awardees.

Established by Komen in 1992, the prestigious Brinker Awards for Scientific Distinction recognize advances in both our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of breast cancer (Basic Science) – and the clinical setting (Clinical Research), which are both essential to combating the disease.

Thanks to them and many other esteemed researchers, we have made significant advances in immunotherapy and clinical trials that improve patient care and quality of life. Learn more about their groundbreaking work here.
