HealthMarkets is proud to support the Greater Fort Worth Affiliate of Susan G. Komen and the local Race for the Cure®. In addition to our corporate sponsorship, 2015 marks the 10th year HealthMarkets employees have joined together as a team for the annual Race for the Cure event.
In 2014, they provided $600,000 in grants to local nonprofit organizations that provide low and nocost mammograms, medical treatment and breast cancer education and information. From reaching out and educating about risk factors, to early detection of breast cancer to information about treatment and recovery, Komen empowers and engages the community and provides local support to families affected by this disease.
The Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth Affiliate serves Tarrant, Parker, Johnson and Hood counties in Texas by providing funding for local life-saving programs. These programs address education, screening and treatment for women who otherwise could not afford it.
Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.
HealthMarkets is happy to support Komen Great Fort Worth to provide local funding breast cancer detection, support and educational awareness in Tarrant, Parker, Johnson and Hood counties. For more information on Susan G Komen for the Cure, please visit www.komengreaterfw.org.
