I’ve had the distinct privilege of spending some time around the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® people and offices in Dallas. There are many positive distinctions that are apparent to me between Komen and other non-profits. (More on this in future posts.) Perhaps the most poignant and compelling difference can be summed up in this statement by Susan G. Komen for the Cure President and CEO, Hala Moddelmog, who said, “There is a subtle difference between a mission and a promise. A mission is something you strive to accomplish – a promise is something you are compelled to keep. One is individual; the other is shared. When a mission and a promise are one and the same… that’s when mountains are moved and races are won.”

As we embark on Breast Cancer Awareness Month, please take a few moments to Imagine by watching this moving video that was shared with TheDew by Susan G. Komen for the Cure. It will provide you with important background for the stories to come, as LikeTheDew – along with our readers and writers –attempts to Dew Some Good.
