Susan G. Komen ®—Komen's promise is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality of care for all and energizing science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, the organization has invested almost $2 billion to fulfill its promise, working to end breast cancer in the U.S. and throughout the world through groundbreaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 50 countries.
Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation (DSLRF)—With more than 365,000 grassroots volunteers from around the country, Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation conducts, funds and fast tracks research with the unique mission of creating a future without breast cancer by understanding the causes and ways to prevent it.
The Pink Fund—Provides financial aid in the form of direct bill payment on behalf of breast cancer patients in active treatment. Many patients are unable to work during treatment. Others lose their jobs. With mounting bills and either no income or severely limited income, they quickly find themselves in dire financial distress. The Pink Fund provides Real Help Now.
Young Survival Coalition (YSC)—The Young Survival Coalition directly improves the lives of thousands of young women with breast cancer. One in eight women diagnosed with breast cancer are younger than 45 years old. YSC provides free resources and programs to support, educate and empower these women.
In addition, Remo has manufactured the Warriors in Pink line of percussion which includes a 12” Mondo Djembe with a matching graphic drumhead, a 14” Buffalo Drum, a 22” Graphic Bass Drumhead and a 14” Graphic Batter Drumhead.
