According to Susan G. Komen For the Cure, Nancy Brinker, who founded the group 30 years ago, will step down as CEO, once a replacement is found. Brinker has announced she'll be moving to a new management position.
Also, Elizabeth Thompson will step down as the organization's president next month, and two board members are also leaving.
Brinker told the Wall Street Journal the changes are unrelated to the Planned Parenthood controversy from earlier this year. That's when the foundation decided to cut off funding to some projects. Planned Parenthood said the group was caving to anti-abortion groups. Komen later reversed its decision after pressure from lawmakers and internal dissent.
