The Susan G. Komen North Carolina Triangle to the Coast is a nonprofit organization that helps fund breast cancer research and provides help to those facing the disease. It was founded in 1982 “by Nancy G. Brinker, who promised her sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would end the disease that claimed Suzy’s life,” according to nonprofit officials.

“I am deeply honored to lead Komen NCTC in its commitment to fighting breast cancer through research, community outreach, public policy advocacy, and access to health care across central and eastern North Carolina,” Park Berry says. “I am passionate about the affiliate’s innovative breast health initiatives, and I look forward to being part of the work that carries the mission forward.”

Susan G. Komen NCTC serves twenty-nine counties in North Carolina with grant funding to local organizations that provide mammograms, diagnostic screenings, financial support, and treatment services to uninsured and underinsured breast cancer patients.
