The Susan G. Komen for the Cure StoryThe Power of a Promise
Founded in 1982 by Nancy G. Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen.
Komen Tyler Affiliate (Click View and go to Master then Slide Master to change the text.)4(WHY we do what we do)The reason that Komen for the Cure exists is because of a promise that was made between two sisters: Nancy Goodman Brinker (on the right) and her older sister, Suzy Goodman Komen (on the left).
The story is told most poignantly by the Founder herself, Nancy Brinker in this short video, We Will.

Any of us who personally learn of a new diagnosis, recurrence, or someone who has lost their battle with breast cancer are too painfully reminded that we have not yet accomplished our mission.

TimelineKomen Tyler Affiliate (Click View and go to Master then Slide Master to change the text.)8In order to appreciate the Komen story, its important to look at the Komen timeline in conjunction with milestones in the world of breast cancer.At the time of Suzys diagnosis in 1977, breast cancer was a disease rarely discussed in public. There was scarce information and medical treatments were limited and often drastic. Perhaps the most significant milestone to date was the clinical method for classifying four states of the development of the disease, which afforded clinically-based treatment options. The politics of breast cancer accelerated in the 1970s, when Shirley Temple Black, Betty Ford and Happy Rockefeller told the world they had breast cancer. It was during that time frame that Suzy was diagnosed and shortly after her death, that Komen was founded. All were change-agents to an environment in which breast cancer could be looked at as a dangerous disease that needed to be addressed by public institutions, rather than a private and shameful secret. In 1982 Komen got off to an ambitious beginning with its first fund-raising event: an International Womens Polo Tournament and Lawn party which allowed Komen to award its first two research grants each in the amount of $15,000.Komen wanted a more universal event that could bring a greater awareness to breast cancer and empower women to take greater control over their breast health. The Komen Race for the Cure was born in 1983 with 800 women triumphantly crossing the finish line in Dallas, TX.Note that in 1989, 54% of American women 40 and over are getting mammograms. The message of early detection is beginning to have an impact.

While there has been significant growth in the Komen network since the expansion of the first local organization in 1990, there are still many communities that are not currently included in the service area of a Komen Affiliate.

Komen for the Cure and our Affiliates do not provide direct services. We are a funding organization. In fact, Komen runs the most innovative and responsive grant program in breast cancer today.
We remain the nation's largest private provider of funds for breast cancer research and community outreach programs.
Oftentimes, Komen is the only source of funding for cutting-edge breast cancer research, some of which has led to landmark discoveries in the quest to find a cure for and eventually prevent breast cancer.
Through early funding of basic research, Komen has laid the groundwork for some of todays most promising breast cancer treatments. Some of you are aware of the drug, Tamoxi
