Komen for the Cure will host a roundtable discussion to launch New Mexico's participation in the Komen Community Challenge.

These events mark the fifteenth stop of the Komen Community Challenge, a 25-city campaign to elevate breast cancer on the national agenda and draw attention to disparities in breast cancer mortality.

In New Mexico, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women, and more than 1,000 New Mexico women will receive a diagnosis in 2007. Breast cancer is the leading cause of death for Hispanic, African American and Native American women in the state, and low-income women are three times more likely to die from the disease. More than 150,000 uninsured New Mexico women between the ages of 19 to 64 will be diagnosed too late to have the greatest chance at survival.

Roundtable Discussion

Komen for the Cure, Lt. Gov. Diane Denish, Sen. Dede Feldman and other leaders will discuss how New Mexico can close gaps in access to quality breast cancer screening and treatment. Panelists will focus on barriers to care and propose changes to ensure all women have the same chance to survive breast cancer.
