About Susan G. Komen
Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. Since its founding in 1982, Komen has funded over $988 million in research and provided more than $2 billion in funding to screening, education, treatment and psychosocial support programs serving millions of people in more than 30 countries worldwide. Komen was founded by Nancy G. Brinker, who promised her sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would end the disease that claimed Suzy’s life.
The mission of Susan G. Komen South Carolina is to provide funding for breast health services, breast cancer education and outreach throughout South Carolina. The Affiliate's dollars support both the local community programs (75%) and research (25%). That 25% is still supporting the community, because research benefits everyone, regardless of where they live or their socioeconomic status. Research done elsewhere will still benefit your communities.
The South Carolina Affiliate of Susan G. Komen—along with those who generously support us with their talent, time and resources—is working to better the lives of those facing breast cancer in our community. We join more than 100,000 breast cancer survivors and activists around the globe as part of the world’s largest and most progressive grassroots network fighting breast cancer.
Our promise is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
