Shake-up at Komen cancer group
Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the breast-cancer advocacy group, will be making changes at the top.
Nancy Brinker, the founder and current CEO of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the breast-cancer advocacy group criticized earlier this year for its funding policy toward Planned Parenthood, will be moving to a new management position, various news outlets are reporting..
The group said it's searching for both a new chief executive officer and president.
Liz Thompson, the group's president, will leave next month, Dallas-based Komen said Wednesday in an emailed statement.
The organization is the largest breast-cancer advocacy group in the U.S.
The changes were first reported by The Wall Street Journal.
