Susan G. Komen hands out over $600K in grants

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A breast cancer advocacy group announced recipients for more than $600,000 in grants.

Thursday, the Louisville affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation handed out the grants to local non-profit programs that will provide breast cancer screening and treatment, as well as breast health education to residents in 15 surrounding countries.

The Komen Foundation said anybody can be affected by the disease.

The community grants program seeks to reduce breast cancer mortality, especially among those who are disproportionately affected by the disease.
