Komen San Diego Ramps Up for Important Race for the Cure(R) November 1
Date:10/8/2009

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists committed to ending breast cancer forever, is ramping up for the 13th Annual Komen San Diego Race for the Cure®, which will be held Sunday, November 1, 2009. Amanda Nixon, this year's Honorary Breast Cancer Survivor, along with more than 13,000 San Diegans donning pink breast cancer awareness clothing, banners and memorial messages are expected to unite in Balboa Park for the event. A survivor ceremony will be held prior to the race to recognize Nixon as well as other San Diego breast cancer survivors and their families.

"More than 15 percent of San Diegans are uninsured, and events like the Race for the Cure, which raise funds to help those without insurance are more important than ever," said Laura Farmer Sherman, executive director of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, San Diego. "During this time of economic uncertainty, we know that the need for breast health services is growing bigger in San Diego. We ask that members of our community support us in the Race for the Cure so that we can ensure we have the necessary funding to help as many men and women in San Diego as possible."

Why we need your support: Every step counts! Your donation provides women and men in San Diego County with services that have literally saved lives. You help make the following programs possible:

  • Free mammograms and diagnostics
  • Medical treatment for qualified breast cancer patients who cannot afford care, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation
  • Support services including support groups, assistance with finding financial resources, prescription refills and transportation to medical appointments
  • Education about the warning signs of breast cancer, methods of early detection and the latest treatment options
  • Cutting-edge research to find a cure for breast cance
