Miles for the Cure
Earn 10 AAdvantage® miles for each dollar you donate for breast cancer research.

Breast cancer research and awareness are longstanding priorities for American Airlines. Building on its 30-year history of supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure® nationally, American Airlines has pledged to raise $1 million annually for eight years, to fund the Promise Grant – a $7.5 million, five-year study of inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.

Contributions are partially raised through American’s Miles for the Cure® program, in which AAdvantage® members earn 10 miles for each dollar contributed to Komen with a $25 minimum donation.

IBC is one of the deadliest forms of breast cancer. It can be difficult to diagnose, is extremely aggressive and typically spreads rapidly. The goal of the Promise Grant research is to lead to earlier and more accurate diagnosis of IBC and to provide the first therapies specifically designed to treat it, both of which are critically important to improve the overall survival of patients with this type of cancer.

As the Official Airline of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, American is pleased to continue its relationship with Komen. From sponsoring the first race in Dallas in 1983 to our expanded partnership today, American remains committed to Komen's promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever.

Please join us as we imagine the world – and life – without breast cancer.
