The most well-known event that Susan G. Komen Austin offers is the nationwide Race for the Cure. This race raises money and awareness for breast cancer research. Another fundraising event in October is Dine Out for the Cure®. Local restaurants donate a portion of their proceeds from October 23-26 to Susan G. Komen Austin. Our Austin ObGyns and staff support these community efforts to find a cure for breast cancer.
Our Austin ObGyns take every opportunity to educate women about early detection of breast cancer. Susan G. Komen Austin also provides many resources, outreach programs and educational materials to women throughout the Austin area.
The more women know about breast cancer, the more likely they are to schedule annual visits and screenings with a physician, an important step in the fight against breast cancer. Women can contact our Austin ObGyns to learn more about how they can take proactive steps for early detection of breast cancer.
Our Austin ObGyns and Susan G. Komen Austin urge women to take three important steps to ensure that breast cancer is found in its earliest, most treatable stages.
