When you support the Lubbock Area of Susan G. Komen, you help the YWCA of Lubbock. The YWCA began its Breast and Cervical Health Initiative in 1996. During its 15 year history, the program has been a significant force in the region’s fight against breast cancer and has provided outreach, education and service to more than 15,000 uninsured or underinsured men and women. With Komen grant funds, the YWCA of Lubbock provides underinsured or uninsured women in Lubbock county and the surrounding counties with free education and access to screening and diagnostic cancer services. To find out more about The YWCA of Lubbock visit www.ywcalubbock.org or call (806)-792-2723 ext. 3247.

Because a picture can be worth a thousand words, there are now 11 short videos on different procedures throughout the Understanding Breast Cancer section of komen.org. For example, you can now learn even more about needle biopsies, surgery options or lymphedema by watching these videos. Check them out to “see” and learn!
