Komen Lubbock Area is the local resource for women who need breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support. That impact translates into almost 1,000 instances of support every year to people in our 16-country service area.
We believe everyone on the South Plains should have access to life-saving screenings and treatment. But unfortunately, that’s not the case today. In our communities, 38% of people live in under-served areas, 25% have no health insurance, and 41% earn less than 250% of the poverty level—which means they are not getting access to the care they need.
