Komen for the Cure Pittsburgh - 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 for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the worldís 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. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. For more information about Susan G. Komen for the Cure, breast health or breast cancer, visit or call 1-800 IíM AWARE.
At Susan G. Komen for the Cure, we know that ending breast cancer is about more than curing a medical condition Ė itís about overcoming the cultural, social and financial conditions that prevent women from receiving life-saving breast health care and treatment.
Please join us at the Zombie Ball on Saturday night, where we will be having a silent auction with all proceeds benefiting Komen for the Cure Pittsburgh.
