Our Mission
It's simple. We're fighting breast cancer in the 14 counties of the Upper Cumberland area. How?
  • Funding programs that support those in the fight to save lives
  • Educating the Upper Cumberland about breast cancer risk factors, the importance of early detection and the resources that are available to them
What We Do

The Komen Upper Cumberland Affiliate serves thousands of women (and men) in 14 counties as the primary and local funding source for programs that:

  • provide low-cost or free screening mammograms, diagnostic testing and breast cancer treatment to medically under-served Upper Cumberland residents
  • provide support services before, during and after breast cancer treatment

We empower Upper Cumberland residents with information about the importance of early detection and breast health.
We donate 75 percent of net funds raised to vital local breast health services, and dedicate the remaining 25 percent to national research to find the cures.
Since 2006, Komen Upper Cumberland has invested over $760,000 into community grant programs to fund breast health programs and services for Upper Cumberland residents and have given over $225,000 to breast cancer research.

The Difference We Make
Komen Upper Cumberland is part of the big picture to eradicate breast cancer. But we're also focused on the local needs of our community. We are dedicated to educating our community about breast cancer and the resources available along with funding life-saving screening and treatment programs for our neighbors currently battling this disease. Komen Upper Cumberland funding provided the following from 2006 to 2014:
  • 6044 mammograms
  • 4545 exams
  • 2071 diagnostic services
  • 83 detections
