A Portion of our Sales go to Susan G Komen Foundation
The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36. Today, the Komen Foundation is a global leader in the fight against breast cancer through its support of innovative research, meritorious awards, community-based outreach programs and its advancement of the life-saving message of early detection to millions of women and men. The Foundation is headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
The North Jersey Affiliate was founded in 1997 on a promise “to make a difference” to a ten –year-old girl who lost her mother to breast cancer. Affiliate Board of Trustees, Medical Advisory Council, staff, and over 700 survivor and activists fulfill that promise every day by delivering the life-saving message of early detection.
Through fundraising events like the Pink Tie Ball, the Affiliate supports community-based breast health education, and screening and treatment programs focusing on undeserved and uninsured women. Seventy-five percent of net funds raised by the affiliate stays within its services area and the remaining twenty-five percent is directed to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Award and Research Grant Program.
