Greater Cincinnati Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure
Sisters Susan G. Komen and Nancy G. Brinker were both inspired by the same battle with cancer. Shortly after Komen was diagnosed with the disease, she began intensive treatment. While going in and out of hospitals, Komen maintained a positive spirit and attempted to share her strength with other women fighting breast cancer. When her sister succumbed to the disease, Brinker started Susan G. Komen for the Cure in her sister's honor to empower women afflicted with breast cancer. The organization aims to ensure that people living with breast cancer receive quality medical care and raises money for scientific advancements to find cures for the disease.
One of a network of 121 affiliates across the country, the Greater Cincinnati Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure began as an annual Race for the Cure event with 2,700 participants. Over time, it has grown in numbers and strength and now sponsors events—including softball tournaments and bingo—to raise funds and awareness for screening, treatment, and research. The organization has funded $6.3 million in local screening and educational events and contributed $2 million to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer Research Grant Program.
