Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker — Leading A Global Movement To End Breast Cancer

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker (https://nancybrinker.com/) is Founder of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation (https://www.komen.org/) and Co-Founder of the Promise Fund of Florida (https://www.promisefundofflorida.org/).

Amb. Brinker is a three-time Ambassador and New York Times best-selling author who is regarded as the leader of the global breast cancer movement. Her journey began with a promise to her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything possible to end the shame, pain, fear, and hopelessness caused by this disease. In one generation, the organization that bears Susan’s name has changed the world.

In 2009, President Barack Obama honored Amb. Brinker with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, for this work. The same year, she was named Goodwill Ambassador for Cancer Control for the United Nations’ World Health Organization, where she continued her mission to put cancer control at the top of the world health agenda.

In 2010, Amb. Brinker released her New York Times best-selling memoir “Promise Me — How a Sister’s Love Launched the Global Movement to End Breast Cancer” (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0307718123?ie=UTF8&tag=lif…07718123), an inspirational story of her transformation from bereaved sister to the undisputed leader of the ongoing international movement to end breast cancer.

From 2001–2003, Amb. Brinker served as U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Hungary and served as U.S. Chief of Protocol from 2007–2009.

Amb. Brinker is also the host of a weekly show on Newsmax TV which features news makers, corporate leaders, and high-profile cultural thought leaders.
