Who We Are
Komen National . Board of Trustees . Medical Advisory Council . Staff
The North Jersey Affiliate was founded in 1997 on a promise "to make a difference" to a ten-year-old girl who lost her mother to breast cancer. Affiliate Board of Trustees, Medical Advisory Council, staff and over 700 survivors and activists fulfill that promise every day by delivering the life-saving message of early detection.
Through fundraising events like the Pink Tie Ball, the Affiliate supports community-based breast health education, and screening and treatment programs focusing on underserved and uninsured women. Seventy-five percent of net funds raised by the Affiliate stays within its service area* and the remaining twenty-five percent is directed to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Award and Research Grant Program.
