The Mid-Michigan Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is working to reduce rates of late stage breast cancer diagnosis and mortality and to improve the quality of life for breast cancer survivors. Applications are invited annually, usually in October, for grants to support high impact breast cancer programs in the Mid-Michigan area. Programs should address the following priorities -
Priority 1: Promote breast health awareness and the importance of screening across our service area, particularly in the cities of Lansing, Jackson and Ypsilanti.
Priority 2: Provide support to alleviate gaps in access to breast screening for uninsured and underinsured women, and for those under 40 with a breast health concern.
Priority 3: Provide breast cancer survivors with programs offering emotional, social and physical support during and following breast cancer treatment.
Priority 4: Increase the visibility and knowledge of the Komen Mid-Michigan Affiliate throughout its service area.
The priorities of Komen Mid-Michigan are fully described in the updated Affiliate’s 2011 Community Profile, a needs assessment of Clinton, Eaton, Ingham, Jackson, Livingston, Shiawassee and Washtenaw counties. It is suggested that all applicants are familiar with the Community Profile.
