About Susan G. Komen® and the Komen Southern Nevada Affiliate
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen. The Southern Nevada Affiliate is part of the world’s largest and most progressive grassroots network fighting breast cancer. Through events like the Komen Southern Nevada Race for the Cure, the Southern Nevada Affiliate has invested $7.7 million in community breast cancer programs in six counties since 1996. Up to 75 percent of net proceeds generated by the Affiliate stays in the local community. The remaining 25 percent funds national breast cancer research.
