DALLAS – March 18, 2020 – Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading nonprofit breast cancer organization, today suggested healthy women of average risk delay routine breast cancer screening until later this year.

Komen Foundation – an organization dedicated to breast cancer research, education, and access to diagnostic services, screening and treatment.
