"Indy's Super Cure" campaign is designed to raise awareness about the Komen Tissue Bank and increase the diversity of breast tissue donations toward a goal of advancing breast-cancer research.

The Komen Tissue Bank, established in 2006, collects healthy breast tissue and blood donations that are then provided to breast cancer researchers globally. The data derived from that research is made available collectively to researchers.
