Susan B. Komen Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer Resource Center

One woman in eight is given a breast cancer diagnosis at some point in her lifetime. And in rural areas, it's not always easy or convenient to find state-of-the-art equipment or expert services. Until now.

Currently, over 65 percent of the breast cancer patients at Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center are from rural areas. If you or a family member has recently been diagnosed or is going through the breast cancer journey, it's more important than ever to educate yourself and know your options.
