Susan G. Komen’s Bold Goal is to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026. With a global headquarters in Dallas, TX and a robust network of US and International Affiliates, Susan G. Komen's mission is to save lives and end breast cancer forever.

The Origin
In 1980, Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became the Susan G. Komen® organization and the beginning of a global movement.
The Vision
The Mission
Susan G. Komen's mission is to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
