The Houston Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® was established to provide innovative breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment projects in SE Texas. http://komen-houston.org
Twenty-seven years ago, 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 launched the global breast cancer movement and the creation of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, now known as the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. The Komen organization as a whole has invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill their promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
The promise of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
Without a cure, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. will continue to be diagnosed with breast cancer. Without a cure, an estimated 5 million Americans will be diagnosed with breast cancer - and more than 1 million could die - over the next 25 years. Without a cure, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer - and 10 million could die - over the next 25 years.
