Komen Charlotte year-end statistics

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - New email from Komen Charlotte with 2018 stats:

  • 4,934 mammograms, diagnostic services & exams given.
  • 51 women found with breast cancer. 
  • 487 people got extra care coordination/transportation/co-pay deductible assistance.

Fifty-one women found their cancer from these life-saving services. All live in the 13-county area that Komen Charlotte serves: Anson, Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Montgomery, Stanly, Richmond, Rowan, Union, and York.

So often we talk about the excitement of "Race for the Cure" and the hard work many of you put into it -- here is one small example of how that money and effort ends up helping actual people.

Thank you.
