Kim Rowden pic17th Annual KIM ROWDEN BREAST CANCER MEMORIAL FUND Golf Tournament

Breast Cancer is a devastating disease that touches each and every one of us in some capacity. The best means we currently have to fight breast cancer is by early detection through annual screening mammography and, in some instances, a breast MRI.
The Kim Rowden Breast Cancer Memorial Fund is a non-profit memorial fund established by the Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center. It provides funds for women with little or no resources to have the same breast care that every woman deserves – the best. Through the Kim Rowden Fund, disadvantaged women are able to receive mammographic screening, diagnosis, and treatment, if needed. The hope is to allow all women the same care, regardless of economic standing, because breast cancer does not discriminate.

The Fund was established in memory of Kim Rowden, a patient of the Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center. Kim was twenty-five when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was a loving daughter, a warm-hearted and gifted young woman, and was engaged to be married. Kim had many talents: crafts, needlepoint, pianist, dancer, basketball, and golf; but her greatest talent was her ability to inspire everyone she met- including the medical team that fought to save her life.
Kim lived three more years after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Her breast cancer played a vital role in the detection of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, the only two breast cancer genes to be identified as of yet in the human genome. Kim’s deep faith gave hope to all she encountered through her special embrace on life.
