It was a simple, heart-felt promise, sister to sister. But that promise changed the life of Nancy Brinker and lead to the global non-profit organization Susan G. Komen for the Cure. “When Suzy died, my life’s work was born. Her meaning became my mission,” is how Nancy describes it in her memoir “Promise Me.”
“Promise Me” is the story of Nancy’s relationship with her sister Susan, her words to her dying sister, and the 30-year-long mission to change the way the world thought of, spoke of, and treated breast cancer. Susan G. Komen for the Cure is now the largest private funder of breast cancer research.
The book will be released nationwide on September 14.
