“In an effort to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the next 10 years, this partnership with OHFN allows us to bring more resources to this region and save lives. Currently, Southeast Ohio has one third of the diagnoses and deaths in our entire 30-county service area. It's our collective responsibility to do what we can to advance innovative solutions that reduce barriers and increase access.” -Katie Carter, Executive Director at Susan G. Komen® Columbus.
