Lifetime Legacy Society
What Legacy Will You Leave?
The next generation could live in a world without breast cancer. Our efforts today are what is needed to discover tomorrow's cure.
The Lifetime Legacy Society honors individuals who have made a commitment to the fight against breast cancer through a future gift to Susan G. Komen. Like you, these men and women are driving the change that will help us achieve our shared vision. Your support represents the hope of offering a full lifetime to those suffering from breast cancer.
Why We Need You
Every 60 seconds, someone in the world dies from breast cancer. In the U.S. alone, more than 42,000 men and women will lose their lives this year to this devastating disease—that's one person every 13 minutes. With one in eight women in the U.S. expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in her lifetime—or one woman every two minutes—nearly everyone will be touched in some way by this disease.
A future gift to Komen allows us to provide funding for life-changing research, advocate for compassionate public policy and patient rights, empower people with fact-based information and provide the treatment assistance and emotional support patients need.
