Anne Morris, Executive Director of Komen Connecticut thanks Dan and Isabella O'Brien of West Hartford- based UBERDOG for hosting their "Bark for Boobies" fundraiser in October. They sold t-shirts and collected donations throughout the month, raising $1,000 for Komen Connecticut and the local fight against breast cancer.
Komen Connecticut's primary focus is on our local community – educating Connecticut residents on the importance of early detection, funding free screening services and providing support to those diagnosed with breast cancer. Komen Connecticut will invest seventy-five percent of the proceeds in local education, screening and treatment programs across the state, and the remaining twenty-five percent will be invested in national research to find the cure.
For each of the past three years, Komen Connecticut has made over $1 Million in community grants to local organizations providing lifesaving services for women in need across our state. Komen Connecticut relies on the support of the local community to continue investing in cutting-edge research and local breast cancer programs for Connecticut women and their families.
