Pink ribbons are synonymous with the fight against breast cancer. That’s common knowledge and has even spawned other types of ribbons with different colors and designs for the support of other various causes. If you’ve stayed current with the pink ribbon culture, then you may be aware that the institution behind it is Susan G. Komen,
Originally known as The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, the foundation is the largest, best-funded, and most publicly visible foundation for the cause of breast cancer. Though the pink ribbon that Komen developed has turned into a runner in motion (to symbolize the foundation’s Race for the Cure running event), the message it carries is still the same.
For anyone who cares to know a bit of history, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure was founded by Nancy Goodman Brinker, the younger sister of Susan Goodman Komen. Komen died of breast cancer at the age of 33 in 1980 because of lack of awareness about the nature of cancer and how to go about treating it. In memory of her sister, Brinker established the foundation in order to encourage research, education, advocacy, and support programs with the end goal of eliminating breast cancer altogether.
