About Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker

The founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and a breast cancer survivor herself, healthcare speaker Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker is an inspiration to the millions of men and women around the world affected by breast cancer. Her efforts have changed the way we view breast cancer, and for her work, she has been honored as one of TIME magazine's "100 Most Influential People."

In 1982, Brinker began Susan G. Komen for the Cure to honor the memory of her sister, who died of breast cancer. At the time, there were few treatment options and little public focus on the disease. Within a few years, Brinker, who led a relentless awareness campaign, succeeded in changing the way we think about breast cancer and treat breast cancer patients. Among her most significant accomplishments is her creation of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the most successful fundraising and educational event for charity ever created. Today, the organization has invested more than $1.9 billion in breast cancer research, education, screening and treatment.

Brinker is the 2009 recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and serves as the Goodwill Ambassador for Cancer Control for the United Nations' World Health Organization. She is the author of the 2010 New York Times best-seller Promise Me, an inspirational story of her transformation from bereaved sister to the undisputed leader of the ongoing international movement to end breast cancer.

  • The Art of Seeing the Invisible
    Drawing on her 25-year experience transforming a small living-room operation into a billion-dollar global network against breast cancer, Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker shares the leadership lessons that every executive and employee needs to know to build their company, energize their teams, strengthen their brand, and institutionalize a Culture of Innovation that allows organizations to stay ahead of the competition and achieve world-class results.

  • Brave Enough!
    Nancy G. Brinker energizes women executives, entrepreneurs, and business owners to overcome the unique challenges facing female business leaders and seize the unprecedented opportunities of today's business world. Drawing on her own experiences of founding, building, and guiding the world's largest network of breast cancer survivors and activists, Brinker inspires women to be "Brave Enough" to pursue their professional ambitions, how her unique lessons for personal and professional fulfillment can help every individual lead a life of both success and significance.

  • Winning the War!
    As one of the world's foremost cancer advocates, a three-decade cancer survivor, and catalyst of the global grassroots breast cancer movement, Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker inspires cancer patients and their families to win their personal war with this devastating disease while urging the international community to recognize and confront the coming "cancer tsunami." Warning that the global cancer burden will more than double in the coming decades--with perhaps 27 million cancer cases every year--Brinker calls for an unprecedented and urgent international campaign to save the lives of millions around the world.
