Letter from our Executive Director!

Komen Milwaukee Affiliate MUST stay on top: We need your continued support!

As the Executive Director of the Komen Milwaukee Affiliate, I am all too aware of a growing health crisis. I am reminded of it almost daily, when I learn about yet another woman who has lost or never had access to screening, early detection, treatment and/or support services for breast cancer because she is unemployed, uninsured, underinsured or an immigrant who is afraid to speak up and request the health care she needs.

The unfortunate realities of health care disparities for the underserved did not begin with the current economic downturn. Komen has been working tirelessly to tackle these inequalities for many years. So, while we are absolutely mindful of the tough times ahead, we know that this is when the people and grassroots organizations we serve count on us the most.

We will continue to do everything in our power to raise the funds necessary to save lives because we know when have to in order to meet the needs of those who we are charged to serve.

We hope that we can count on each and everyone of you to support us in this effort.

Sally Sheperdson
Executive Director
Komen Milwaukee Affiliate
