COVID-19 Action Fund
Your help is needed now, more than ever.
Susan G. Komen Chicago established the COVID-19 Action Fund to support urgent needs among our breast cancer community today.
Who’s At Risk?
Those most vulnerable within the breast cancer community include those living with metastatic breast cancer, breast cancer patients and survivors. Certain breast cancer therapies can cause immune systems to be compromised both during and long after treatment ends.
You can help ensure support continues for those in need, including:
Take Precaution, What You Need to Know
Tips and Resources to Protect Yourself and Your Family
Breast cancer patients are among the most vulnerable to COVID-19.
To minimize exposure to COVID-19, Susan G. Komen suggests healthy women of average breast cancer risk who do not have signs of breast cancer delay their annual mammogram. At the same time, it’s just as important to know your normal and understand the warning signs of breast cancer to contact a doctor if you see changes.
Undue stress may be experienced by anyone during this pandemic, especially by those more vulnerable to COVID-19.
