ly increased rates of survival and improved treatments," said Ambassador Brinker. "Unfortunately, many nations are still where we were three decades ago. In many regions of the world, cancer rates are rising at alarming rates and there are significant economic and cultural barriers that prevent even the most basic care. It's a disease that is expected to kill 10 million people globally in 25 years without intervention."

Ambassador Brinker will volunteer out of Susan G. Komen for the Cure's new Washington, D.C. office, which will serve as the home to the organization's global outreach efforts, as well as the home to its sister organization, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R) Advocacy Alliance; two areas where she hopes to lend her time, experience and vision.

About the Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure(R), we have invested more than $1.3 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
