Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Breast cancer affects all ages, genders and ethnic populations. Breast health education coupled with breast health screenings for those in need helps to detect breast cancer in its earlier stages. The earlier breast cancer is caught, the better the outcome. Financially needy persons often forgo mammography screening due to cost.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our mission statement is "Improving health awareness through education, access, early detection, and breast health awareness." We wish to empower the needy our community with the education regarding breast health practices including the value of screening mammography for women aged 40 and above. For those in medical and financial need of mammography screening in Northeast Kansas, the Race Against Breast Cancer wants to meet that need by paying for their mammography screening. We believe in the importance of annual screening mammograms for healthy women aged 40 and above and diagnostic mammograms for women and men in medical need.

The Race Against Breast Cancer pays for screening and diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound, including 3D technology, for those in medical and financial need in the Northeast Kansas counties we serve - Atchison, Brown, Doniphan, Douglas, Geary, Jackson, Jefferson, Lyon, Morris, Nemaha, Osage, Pottawatomie, Riley, Shawnee and Wabaunsee.

Since 1991 the Race Against Breast Cancer has partnered with area medical providers to ensure that our clients are receiving the best quality service for their breast health needs. We have contracted with Amberwell Health, Holton Community Hospital, Nemaha Valley Community Hospital, Stormont Vail Health and the University of Kansas Health Systems St Francis Campus to provide our clients with screening and diagnostic mammography services. Our network of partner health clinics such as Grace Med in Topeka ensures that those in financial need are aware and utilize our services. We provide our partner medical providers with breast health educational materials to share with their clients to meet the need for breast health education in our community.

Our program has paid for over 10,500 mammography services at no cost to our clients. This year we are excited to celebrate 30 years of serving those in medical and financial need in Northeast Kansas!
