Who We Are
Susan G. Komen was started in 1982 by Nancy Brinker when she promised her dying sister that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. That promise became the largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activisits today.
To save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
