About Susan G. Komen for The Cure:

Susan G. Komen for the Cure was founded on a promise made between two sisters – Susan Goodman Komen and Nancy Goodman Brinker. Suzy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1978, a time when little was known about the disease and it was rarely discussed in public. Before she died at the age of 36, Suzy asked her sister to do everything possible to bring an end to breast cancer. Nancy kept her promise by establishing Susan G. Komen for the Cure in 1982 in Suzy’s memory.

The promise between two sisters has since become the promise of millions. Today, Komen for the Cure is a global leader in the fight against breast cancer. The Connecticut Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure joins 124 other Affiliates worldwide and works locally to fulfill the promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all, and energizing science to find the cures.

Komen Connecticut's primary focus is on our local community – on educating the women and men in our state on the importance of early detection, funding free screening services and providing support to those who are diagnosed with breast cancer. With your help, we raise money to provide grants to fund essential programs right here in Connecticut  that our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends rely on for the care they need.
