Mission Statement

The mission of the Promise Fund of Florida is to help women overcome financial and cultural barriers to improve health equity and reduce deaths from late-stage breast and cervical cancer throughout South Florida.


It all began with a promise.

My name is Nancy G. Brinker and in the year 1980 I had to watch my selfless, courageous, and brilliant sister Susan lose her battle with breast cancer at the age of 36. Before she passed she made me promise her 1- that I would find a cure to this disease and 2- that all women would have access to the resources needed to fight women’s cancers.

Now this organization may not have my sister’s name but it does have her fiery spirit. I can feel her pushing me everyday to fight for these women who cannot get cancer care. I will never forget when I was sitting with Suzy in the hospital and we looked out into the waiting room and saw a sea of women helplessly pleading for care. She turned to me and said:

"where a woman lives shouldn't determine whether she lives".

I am reminded of these words everyday as I work to help all women prevent and fight breast and cervical cancer. Every woman deserves lifesaving care and the Promise Fund won’t rest until no woman dies from late stage breast or cervical cancer.
