Mission:
Our Vision - A World Without Breast Cancer.

History - Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever, and in 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. The Maryland Affiliate is part of the world’s largest and most progressive grassroots network fighting breast cancer. Through events like the Komen Maryland Race for the Cure®, Komen Maryland has invested $35 million in community breast cancer programs since 1993. Up to 75 percent of net proceeds generated by the Affiliate stays in Maryland. The remaining 25 percent funds national breast cancer research.
Results:
Komen Maryland has invested $35 million in community breast cancer programs since 1993. We have over 100 year-round volunteers actively involved in the community educating women, men and families about breast cancer, early detection, and local resources.
