Brinker is a national treasure for her creation of Susan G. Komen for the Cure® foundation; because since it’s conception in 1982, Susan G. Komen for the Cure® has raised awareness in the medical, and political field saving the lives of 23% more breast cancer patients than the original 75%. Over the years, the foundation has slowly, but strongly, effected: the way doctors treat breast cancer, created awareness rising events, such as the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure®, and also given women the opportunity to connect with other breast cancer patients through many different ways. What has made Nancy G. Brinker’s such a powerful, and influential woman in the modern world, is through her compelling story and strong will to succeed. One method she has used to spread B.C awareness is by portraying the pink ribbon symbolizing breast cancer research, into all the well known name brands such as: Nike, H&M, Victoria Secrets, etc. Ultimately, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® foundation couldn’t have made any of this possible without everyone’s donations and dedication to end Breast Cancer.

More than 292,000 women suffer from breast cancer each year making it the most common cancer among women in the United States.
