DAY FOUR – 12 Days of Giving – Cassie and Susan G. Komen

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 for the Cure® and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Susan G. Komen is the boldest community fueling the best science and making the biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested almost $2 billion to fulfill our promise, working to end breast cancer in the U.S. and throughout the world through ground-breaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 50 countries.

This charity means so much to our family because my mom battled breast cancer over 20 years ago. Today she is an amazing mom and grandmother and a source of strength for everyone in our family. We are so blessed that she survived her battle. Susan G. Komen for the Cure is not only about research, advocacy and awareness, but offering hope to women and their families.

The Fresh 20 has donated $250 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
