What was started with $200 and a shoebox full of potential donor names has now grown into the world’s largest nonprofit source of funding for the fight against breast cancer. To date, Komen has invested more than $2.5 billion in groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 30 countries.
