Pink Facts

Bowl for the Cure has such great support from the bowling community, but where do your funds go? A portion of your donations help fund lifesaving research. According to Susan G. Komen, your support has funded over 2,600 research grants and 500 clinical trials. These grants and trials allow for:

  • Improvement in early detection
  • Guarantee more accurate diagnosis
  • Build new methods for prevention
  • Enable personalized treatments for breast cancer subtypes and genetic makeup

Conducting research studies is an extensive and expensive project, but because of your efforts, we have made great strides in treating and preventing breast cancer. As of 2017, the breast cancer death rate has declined by 40%. For more information on clinical trials and the research Susan G. Komen is conducting, click here.

Pink Highlight – BFTC Week Survivors

The 2021 BFTC Week at the Women’s Championships was a great success! We would like to thank all the breast cancer survivors who participated in the event – Deborah Clavel, Carol Kendricks, Susan Dye, Jackie Mattox, Rene Hopkins, Tamra David, Yosemite Hamilton and many more.

It was inspiring to hear their stories and watch how they have overcome trying circumstances. Seeing the bonds they have formed over the years and enjoying their time with friends and family, who have supported them the entire way, was such a great and rewarding experience.
