Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Renamed After 25 Years

It's been 25 years since the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation began. Since then, the foundation has grown.  Monday, the organization unveiled a new name and logo. The foundation will now be known as the Susan G. Komen For The Cure.

"We have grown so much we felt it was time to have a new logo and a shorter name.   It's one that people would remember easier," Peggy Suggs, Board President with Susan G. Komen For The Cure.

The Susan G. Komen For The Cure has raised more than 1 billion dollars in the last 25 years.  Their goal for the next 10 years is another billion dollars.
