Susan G Komen
Susan Goodman, later Susan Goodman Komen, was born on October 31, 1943, in Peoria, Illinois. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33. She died of the disease at age 36 on August 4, 1980. Komen’s younger sister, Nancy Goodman Brinker, believed that Susan’s outcome might have been better if patients knew more about cancer and its treatment. She promised her sister that she would do everything she could to end breast cancer. To fulfill that promise, Brinker founded the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in Komen’s memory in 1982.
In 2008, their 25th anniversary, the organization changed the name to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. They also trademarked a new logo in support of its promise “to end breast cancer forever.” The new logo is a pink ribbon that resembles a runner in motion, to reflect the importance of Komen’s signature Race for the Cure event. This event is currently the world’s largest fundraising event for breast cancer education and research. The logo symbolically associates the organization with the values of breast cancer awareness: fear of breast cancer, hope, and the charitable goodness of people and businesses who publicly support the breast cancer movement.
