A Note about Susan G. Komen for the Cure
Susan G. Komen was a compassionate fighter who spent her last days in the hospital creating ways to help others battling breast cancer. Her altruistic concern inspired her sister, Nancy G. Brinker to make a promise to carry on Susan's determination to end breast cancer.
The Susan G. Komen foundation was created from that promise, and has grown to be the global leader in the fight against breast cancer. Since its inception in 1982, the Susan G. Komen foundation has raised over $1.5 billion to help empower people, create quality care for cancer patients, help fund scientific research, and ultimately save lives. Komen is the largest cancer charity in the world and is recognized as the leading catalyst in the fight against breast cancer, with more than 100,000 volunteers working in a network of 125 U.S. and international affiliates. Susan G. Komen for the Cure received Charity Navigator's highest rating.
