Team Awarded $750,000 by Avon Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness

WASHINGTON, May 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Team leaders, Jeanne Mandelblatt, MD, MPH, and Harriet Weiner have joined 21 other dedicated women from the metro region to walk to raise funds and awareness of breast cancer. The team is composed of members from the Lombardi Comprehensive Care Center and the Capital Breast Care Center (CBCC), a community program of Lombardi.

The team has been training since last winter and will walk between 26.2 and 39 miles on May 2-3 in Washington, D.C. This year's route takes participants through the District of Columbia -- including a rest stop at Georgetown's Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center -- and surrounding areas.

"We train, talk, laugh and share Motrin," jokes Mandelblatt. "We're looking forward to the walk and helping our community," adds Weiner. The team will also be walking in support of medically underserved women in our community.

Mandelblatt, Lombardi's associate director for Population Sciences, says her career has been centered on bringing change in health care and providing cancer care access to underserved populations. In 2004, she applied for -- and received -- a $1 million grant from the Avon Breast Cancer Foundation to fund the Capital Breast Cancer Center. Located in Southeast DC, the CBCC has screened more than 4,000 women for breast cancer since its inception. The Center has diagnosed 50 women and provided support navigating the complicated health and insurance systems to ensure they receive excellent care.

This year, Avon will grant the CBCC another $750,000 to support its mission of providing breast cancer screening to underserved women in the Washington, DC area. Part of this year's award will allow the Center to purchase a new digital mammography machine.

"The new machine allows us to see more women and provide quicker turnaro
