About Susan G. Komen®
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982 that promise became Susan G. Komen® and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. The Chicagoland Affiliate, established in 1997, is one of over 100 Affiliates in the U.S. Since 1997, Komen Chicago has invested nearly $16M in local programs, funding potentially lifesaving services for underserved and uninsured men and women.
