1 person can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. Susan G. Komen was founded by 1 sister making a promise to another sister and today, Komen is the world's largest breast cancer organization. Komen funds more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit while providing real-time help to those facing the disease.
For more than 20 years, Komen Northeast Ohio has been working in our community to ensure that women and men have access to education, screening, treatment and support they need. Through events like the Akron and Cleveland Race for the Cure®, Komen Northeast Ohio has invested more than $13 million in grants to more than 50 organizations in our service area and has contributed more than $5 million to the Susan G. Komen National Research and Scientific Awards Program.
The promise of a world without breast cancer does not just rest in the hands of Komen. It is up to you, our community of volunteers, survivors, co-survivors and activists, to stand united with us until the promise is fulfilled and the cures are found. Be the 1 to make a difference.
