TULSA, Okla., Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tulsa Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure has selected five Tulsa-based non-profit organizations to receive grant awards totaling $420,000, with an additional $143,215 earmarked for national breast cancer research.

The recipients, which include Indian Health Care Resource Center, St. John Medical Center, Tulsa Project Woman, Inc., Breast Cancer Network of Strength - Northeastern Oklahoma Affiliate and Morton Comprehensive Health Services, Inc., will help Komen for the Cure reach its promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.

"The Komen Tulsa Affiliate continues to grow in its ability to grant more money each year," said LeAnne Taylor, President of the Komen Tulsa Board of Directors. "This allows us to provide vital funding for breast cancer services for women who would otherwise be unable to afford them. This is great news for the underserved women in Tulsa who need access to information and the breast cancer services that our non-profit grant recipients provide. They are our front-line defense against breast cancer in the Tulsa community, and we appreciate them greatly."

All of the grant recipient organizations have demonstrated a commitment to making a difference in the lives of Tulsa residents through their breast health programs. A maximum of 75 percent of the net funds raised from the Susan G. Komen Tulsa Race for the Cure and other events remains in Tulsa. A minimum of 25 percent of the net funds - in this case, $143,215 - will help to fund the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure Grants Program.
