Date:9/26/2007

Outreach Efforts Will Raise Breast Cancer Awareness in New Hampshire and

Seek Presidential Candidates' Support for Stronger National Policies

MANCHESTER, N.H., Sept. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Susan G. Komen for the Cure has announced the launch of a public policy campaign aimed at educating and mobilizing New Hampshire voters and challenging the 2008 Presidential candidates to make breast cancer a priority -- in their platforms, and for the country.

Komen for the Cure has produced a radio message which will be distributed to stations across New Hampshire to help raise the profile of breast cancer in the state. The organization is also mailing postcards to over 50,000 registered voters, encouraging them to ask the candidates where they stand on key breast cancer priorities and to "vote for the cure."

"New Hampshire has been hard hit by breast cancer and low-income women and women of color have been hit the hardest. We need to close the gaps in research, policy and access to quality care that make breast cancer deadlier for some women," said Komen President and CEO Hala Moddelmog. "Asking all the Presidential candidates to make the fight against breast cancer a priority is essential to achieving a better national breast cancer policy."

On November 6th, Komen is inviting all spouses of Presidential candidates to participate in a discussion with elected officials, doctors, scientific researchers, advocates and breast cancer survivors about the importance of health care and breast cancer research. The Leadership Forum on Breast Cancer will be held at Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Norris Cotton Cancer Center.

The New Hampshire effort is part of Komen's I Vote for the Cure(TM) campaign (http://www.ivoteforthecure.org) which ch
