October Charity of the Month

The WTOP Charity of the Month is the Susan G. Komen Foundation

For more than 35 years, Susan G. Komen has been waging a war against breast cancer. This year alone, more than 40,000 people in the U.S. will die from breast cancer. That’s unacceptable! Breast cancer is unacceptable! That’s why Komen is determined to cut U.S. breast cancer deaths in half by 2026. With your help, we are making an impact in the fight against breast cancer. Your donations are saving lives and making progress in the mission to end breast cancer forever.

Be Bold. Be Fearless. Be More Than Pink.

Washington D.C. has the highest breast cancer mortality rates in the United States. 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Learn about breast cancer and know your risk.
