Founded by Komen's sister, Nancy Goodman Brinker, the Komen Foundation has grown into a regional network of thousands of volunteers with regional affiliates and Komen Race for the Cure affiliates made up of men and women who have joined the battle against breast cancer. Its mission is to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by advancing research, education, treatment and screening.
