Susan G. Komen for the Cure Thrives With the Aid of Friends Like Christina Kauffman

For more than three decades, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has partnered with supporters such as Christina Kauffman to fight breast cancer. Since its inception in 1982, the world’s leading breast cancer organization has dedicated itself to eradicating this disease, which is the most common cancer affecting women. In 2010, more than 1.6 million women were diagnosed with breast cancer. The organization aspires to serve these women, their families, and the public through education, activism, and science.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure sponsors research and action initiatives such as Circle of Promise, which addresses the disparate impact of breast cancer among African-American women, and Passionately Pink for the Cure, a program which enables individuals and private organizations to sponsor independent fundraisers on the organization’s behalf. Its most famous program, Race for the Cure, is the world’s most successful event of its kind.
