Susan Goodwin Komen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1976, at the age of 36. Before she died, she made her sister, Nancy, promise to do everything she could to try to put an end to breast cancer.
The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation is how Nancy Brinker kept her promise.
The Komen Foundation’s “Race For The Cure” and other community-based initiatives raise funding for local programs and services. To foster and sponsor research on an international scale, the Foundation turns to corporate partners.
“For The Cure” tells the story of how a promise made and kept has brought hope and support to tens of thousands of breast cancer survivors and their families. And led to vital scientific breakthroughs in the effort to understand and eradicate the disease.
