About Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and the Komen WNY Affiliate-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. The WNY Affiliate of Komen for the Cure is working to better the lives of those facing breast cancer in the local community joining more than 1 million breast cancer survivors and activists around the globe as part of the world’s largest and most progressive grassroots network fighting breast cancer. Through events like the Komen WNY Race for the Cure®, the WNY Affiliate has invested over $3 million in community breast health programs in 8 counties.
