ABOUT SUSAN G. KOMEN FOUNDATION
Since launching the breast cancer movement more than 30 years ago, Komen for the Cure® has changed the way the world talks about and treats this devastating disease. In recent years, it was often controversial and considered inappropriate to openly discuss breast cancer. As a nation, we’ve come a long way but now face new challenges. Because of the struggling economy, many women who have lost their jobs and medical insurance cannot afford mammograms. In California, the state budget crisis has forced the closure of the only free mammogram program open to underserved women. The Susan G. Komen for the Cure in San Diego is responding by doing everything possible to raise additional funds. Those funds are raised primarily through the Race for the Cure.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure® ranked number one in a recent Harris Interactive poll as the most valued non-profit brand and the charity people are most likely to donate money to. Additionally, Komen for the Cure ranked second on the 2010 list of the nation’s most trusted charities.
