Midwest Family Lending has chosen to support Susan G Komen of Iowa Charity in the month of September and we encourage you to as well. Please click here to learn more about the charity.
Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. Komen was founded by Nancy G. Brinker, who promised her sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would end the disease that claimed Suzy’s life. Through events like the Komen Iowa Race for the Cure, we have invested over $600,000 in 2013 in local breast health and breast cancer awareness projects in 91 of Iowa’s 99 counties. The Iowa Affiliate also funded more than $4 million within our service area over the past five years. Up to 75 percent of net proceeds generated by the Komen Iowa Affiliate stay in our service.
