"I stay involved with Komen Houston all these years because of a calling to give back in thanksgiving for making it through the fight of my life FOR my life. Volunteering with this wonderful organization has given me incredible opportunities to serve and be there for other women AND MEN who have been diagnosed after me." - Dorothy

That’s why I’m #GivingTuesday to Komen Houston.  Join me on December 2 and support Komen Houston with a gift.

You have an opportunity right now to change a life forever.  
Your gift to Susan G. Komen Houston pays for the mammograms, ultrasounds and treatment services that many women and families can’t afford.

As Komen Houston YPC continues to grow each year, we want to remind you of our focus as the leader in the breast cancer movement...  

  • YPC is comprised of rising young men and women who are engaging a new generation in the culture of philanthropy to achieve our vision of a life without breast cancer.
  • YPC is dedicated to promoting breast cancer awareness, raising funds through innovative programs and providing volunteer support. 
  • YPC provides young professionals a chance to socialize, network and most importantly make a significant impact in the community.  

In addition to networking and social events, here are last year’s fundraising opportunities that YPC provided to its members as a way to make an impact:

  • Sunday Funday Bingo – Raised over $2,000 dollars
  • Party in Pink at Hotel Zaza –Raised over $12,000 dollars
  • YPC Race Team for the Annual Komen Houston Race for the Cure® – Raised over $6,000

The funds raised through these events allow Komen Houston to fund life-saving breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment programs in our local communities.  

Important fact you should know…

  • This year, 3,700 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer in Houston and 600 of those will die
