Susan G Komen is a company well-related to my discipline of healthcare. The vision and mission statement of this organization is almost the same. Its statement is ‘to end the breast cancer forever and to save lives, by investing in science for finding appropriate cures, by providing quality care, and by empowering others.’ The Susan G Komen is well-supported by the hospital where I work in, i.e., The Cancer Treatment Centres of America.
A significant amount of donations are made by The Cancer Treatment Centres of America to the Susan G Komen.
