Team TFC & Susan G. Komen Austin work toward raising breast cancer awareness
Texas Fertility Center has always shared Komen Austin’s goal of raising breast cancer awareness. We are particularly passionate about empowering women with fertility preservation options so that they protect reproductive potential before chemotherapy and breast cancer treatment.
Every year, we encourage women to schedule their mammograms during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and actively participate in the Race for the Cure. This year the race event falls in September. Please consider joining Team TFC to raise breast cancer awareness and much needed funds for this disease that impacts 1 in 8 women in their lifetimes.*
Join Team TFC for the 18th Annual Race for the Cure
The TFC family of physicians, nurses and support staff will once again sponsor Race for the Cure on Sept. 25. We invite current and former fertility patients and their friends and families to join our race team!
Join Team TFC before Sept. 1 and we will provide the t-shirt featured on our Facebook page.
Our team members gain access to our “teams tent” and Komen Koaching from our very own Wendy Blocker, Physician-Patient Liaison and member of the Race for the Cure Teams committee.
Read Wendy’s story here about why she spends so many volunteer hours raising breast cancer awareness. She is a great advocate for women here in Bastrop and Travis counties who need our support.
Team TFC has a goal to increase the number of mammograms we can provide to women through Komen Austin. Last year, our donations covered the cost for eight. This year, we hope to help 18 women access lifesaving testing. A mammogram costs approximately $100.
