Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the beneficiary of this campaign, is a grassroots breast cancer organization founded by Nancy G. Brinker who promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.  Known for one of its biggest events, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series, this organization has become "the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world."

For over twenty years, U.S. News & World Report has ranked hospitals for many different conditions, including Best Cancer Hospitals.  U.S. News is committed to being a source of authoritative information for people seeking the best healthcare for diseases like breast cancer. Working with Susan G. Komen for the Cure enables U.S. News to further its contribution to this cause. Donations made through U.S. News's Passionately Pink Team will go directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure  to support life-saving community education, screening and treatment programs, and fund ground-breaking research projects.

As a leading publisher of information about cancer screening, treatment, and prevention, U.S. News will continue to cover medical advances in breast cancer care -- until the cures are found.
