About Men for the Cure

The Men for the Cure event was founded in 2000 by philanthropist Sharon Magness Blake and television news personality Ed Greene in memory of Diane O’Connor Thompson who lost her battle with breast cancer on Thanksgiving Day 1999.

To date, the dinner has raised over $3 million to advance breast cancer research, care, and early detection education at University of Colorado Hospital. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the cause.

In recognition of Men for the Cure’s outstanding support, the University of Colorado Hospital renamed the Breast Center the Diane O’Connor Thompson Breast Center in 2007.

In 2010, the board of directors for the Men for the Cure Foundation formally moved the event under the auspices of the University of Colorado Hospital Foundation.

Men for the Cure funds have been used to purchase medical equipment such as a biopsy machine, a digital specimen radiography system, a stereotactic biopsy table and a mobile mammography unit named “The Pink Life Saver.”
