Join Us in Supporting the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

When Milwaukee's Lakefront becomes a sea of pink on Sept. 21, we hope you'll be there too to help support the fight against breast cancer.

Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare is a proud sponsor of the event, which raises money for breast screening and education in Southeast Wisconsin as well as national cancer research initiatives. We'll have a team of Wheaton walkers and runners, plus you can find us among the grantees and sponsors, so we hope you will stop by and see us!

You can register online at 2014 Komen Southeast Wisconsin Race for the Cure now through September 19 or register in person at the Pettit Center or Mayfair Mall. Find participating locations and more information. This means you and your friends can register for the Race and leave with your 2014 Race t-shirt and bib number in hand! Chances are you can take part in these registration events at the same time you're crossing off items from your shopping list.

Komen dollars currently help to support three program within Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare:

  • Su Salud/Your Health is a bilingual prevention program educating Spanish-speaking Latinas in a culturally appropriate manner on breast health and prevention of breast cancer. The program pairs an RN breast care coordinator with a Hispanic lay health educator or cultural companion to give Latinas brief presentations on breast health. The St. Francis Foundation also provides mammograms to women who cannot afford them.
  • The Phenomenal Women breast health program at Wheaton Franciscan – St. Joseph works to educate low-income African American women about breast cancer and the importance of consistent breast health care. It also helps remove barriers to mammograms and clinical breast exams and provides navigation services to African American women to get mammograms.
  • The Greater Racine County Mammogram Coalition encourages and supports women as they receive their mammograms. Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare – All Saints and the Parish Nurse and Bosom Buddies programs are members of the coalition.

We are grateful for your support and hope to see you at the Lakefront!
