The funds Komen East TN grants to community programs in our service area have made a positive difference in the lives of those living with this deadly disease.

Since it was founded in 1997, Komen East TN has invested almost $10.7 million in screening, diagnosis, and patient assistance services for patients living our 24-county services area.
