| Who we are

In 1980, Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. That promise became the Susan G. Komen® organization, now the worlds leading nonprofit in the fight against breast cancer. To date, we’ve invested more than $2.9 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 60 countries. We work to support those who need help today, while tirelessly searching for tomorrow’s cures.
