In March 2011, Susan G. Komen for the Cure® received a $1 million grant from KeyBank Foundation to establish the Susan G. Komen Community Health Advisor Training Program. This largest-ever national grant awarded by KeyBank Foundation will help Susan G. Komen activate its network to address the significant breast cancer burden facing uninsured and minority women. The program, made possible by KeyBank Foundation, will provide breast health education and support to underserved women. “A woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every two minutes, and one woman will die of breast cancer every 13 minutes in the U.S.,” said Beth E. Mooney, KeyCorp Chairman and CEO. “Its impact is especially devastating for women of color, who are more likely to die from breast cancer, and for poor or uninsured women. Our investment in this innovative program reflects our corporate diversity vision and is just one way we give back to the communities where the people of Key live and work.”
