I was first introduced to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in college through my sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma’s philanthropy of breast cancer awareness. Although not all of us were affected personally by the disease, it was inspiration enough that the Susan G. Komen Foundation was founded on a promise made between two sisters, Susan Goodman Komen and Nancy Goodman Brinker, which was never broken. Susan was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1978 and before she died at the age of 36, she asked her sister to do everything possible to bring an end to breast cancer. Nancy kept her promise by establishing the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in 1982.
The Komen Massachusetts Race for the Cure celebrates its 23rd anniversary this year and has contributed to funding more than $68 million in breast cancer research, local education, screening and treatment. Today, I am inspired by the power of a promise made in a sisterhood as I race to support a cure!
