Under the rallying cry of "We Will," breast cancer advocates will gather to share inspiration, knowledge and strategic plans as they strengthen their commitment to do whatever it takes to realize Komen's vision of a world without breast cancer. Last year, which was Komen's 25th anniversary, the organization reached a milestone of $1 billion invested in breast cancer research and community outreach programs since its inception. Komen has publicly pledged to invest another $2 billion in the next decade.

Explaining the meaning behind the theme of the conference, Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker, founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, said, "Who will make sure every person has access to breast cancer education, screening and treatment regardless of income, ethnicity or race? Who will keep promising research moving forward? Who will help the newly diagnosed find support and information? Who will organize the more than 120 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure(R) events and other initiatives that raise vital funds? Who will move us closer to a world without breast cancer? We -- the millions of Susan G. Komen for the Cure advocates around the world -- will."
