Our local affiliates: the heart and spine of Susan G. Komen for the Cure

In 1989, the Berlin Wall was torn down, and The Joy Luck Club was published. Bette Davis and another 40,000 women died of breast cancer. We launched the Susan G. Komen National Toll-Free Breast Cancer Helpline, and our first chapter beyond our core group in Dallas opened its doors in San Francisco. This affiliate is still humming with that fantastic energy unique to the Bay Area.

The lasting relationships with our local affiliates mean so much to SGK and to me personally. I’m continually inspired and held accountable by their unshakable belief in what we’re doing. Every year, we get together for a huge conference of local affiliate leaders, and I always come away energized and humbled.
