Thank you for your interest in the Komen North & West Texas advocacy program. We join together with other Komen Affiliates in Texas and across the country as a non-partisan advocate for our constituents at the local, state, and national level. We also provide our community with updated information about their elected officials’ stances on breast cancer related issues.

The Susan G. Komen® Advocacy Alliance (KAA) is the non-partisan voice for over 2.5 million breast cancers survivors and the people who love them. Our mission is to translate the Komen promise to end breast cancer forever into action at all levels of government to discover and deliver the cures.
Komen’s Current Advocacy Priorities:
- Support for federal funding for all biomedical research, especially breast cancer research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense (DOD)
- Support state and federal funding for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) and support policies to modernize NBCCEDP state programs to expand eligibility and provide breast cancer screening and diagnostic services for additional populations
- Advocate for policies that improve insurance coverage for breast cancer treatments and screening, specifically pertaining to increased access to drug therapies and limiting out-of-pocket costs for diagnostic mammography
- Evaluate state and federal policies to increase awareness, education and access to clinical trials for all patient populations
