Our Vision – A world without breast cancer.
Our Promise – To save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cure.
Today, Susan G. Komen for the CureÂ® is the worldâ€™s largest and most progressive grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists. Breast cancer is not predictable – it is a random disease. There are no boundaries – age, race, religion, socioeconomic status are not factors. It is the leading cause of death among women ages 40 – 59. Breast cancer strikes women during their most productive years – both personally and professionally. Everyone is affected by breast cancer â€“ itâ€™s a family disease. We donâ€™t know what causes it, and we donâ€™t have a cure. Early detection is critical, providing more treatment options and a greater chance of survival.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer over the past 25 years â€“ transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease. We have helped turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors. With more than $1.3 billion invested to date, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the worldâ€™s single largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to curing breast cancer at every stage â€“ from the causes, to the cures, to the pain and anxiety of every moment in between.
