The promise of Susan G. Komen® is save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for everyone and energizing science to find the cures. Susan G. Komen runs one of the most innovative, responsive grant programs in breast cancer today. Our Affiliate is proud to have contributed over $2M towards breast cancer research programs to date. In addition to funding research, the Affiliate funds non-duplicative, community-based breast health education and breast cancer screening and treatment support projects for the medically underserved in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties. In 2014-2015, we funded $260,000 to local community programs throughout the Inland Empire. Komen IE has funded more than $6.2 million to local community programs for breast health education, diagnostic services, treatment support programs, patient navigation services, as well as interpretation services throughout San Bernardino and Riverside Counties since 1999.
We have two locations to serve the Inland Empire. Our main office is located in Temecula and through a generous donation, the Komen Inland Empire Breast Cancer Resource Center opened in January 2010. The Komen Affiliate goals are to increase breast health awareness and offer women and families residing in the desert cities a place to gather life-saving information and support.

Information about Mammograms:
Mammography is the best screening tool for breast cancer used today. It can find cancers at an early stage, when they are small (often too small to be felt) and most responsive to treatment. Mammograms can be done in:
– Certified radiology and imaging centers
– Mammography clinics
– Hospital radiology departments
– Mobile vans
– Some physician offices
If you are in need of a screening clinical breast exam or mammogram, or a diagnostic service, please call us at 951-676-7465. We can assist you in finding a local screening service. For women or men that are uninsured, or underinsured (unable to pay the costs for co-pays or insurance premiums, or do not qualify for other programs), programs are available for a Komen-funded breast cancer screening or diagnostic service.
