12 Days of Giving: Susan G Komen

Posted: Updated:

For decades Komen Acadiana has been helping women and men as they navigate through the difficult journey of breast cancer. 

 "We help provide mammogram, transportation, and we do a lot of services that are needed in the community," says Gretchen Neuner Daniel the Area Director for  Komen Acadiana

While Susan G. Komen is a national organization, Komen Acadiana is local with all of the money raised in Acadiana staying there. 

"We service 19 parishes in Louisiana and fund research nationally," Daniel added.

With Louisiana ranking third highest in the nation for breast cancer mortality, Komen plays a major role in preventative measures. 

"Early detection is key....without that early detection it can be a life or death situation," Daniel explains. 

Komen has been there for Acadiana for decades and whether you're sporting a pink wig or wearing a splash of pink here and there, every little bit helps to those battling for their lives.
