Komen for the Cure Launches 'Presidential' Campaign
Date:9/26/2007

allenges the candidates to address three critical, commonsense goals: 1) More Research -- and better ways to ensure that critical advances in the laboratory reach patients; 2) Free Screening -- so that every low-income, uninsured, and underinsured woman in America has access to early detection and 3) Treatment for all -- to make sure that all women diagnosed with breast cancer have access to high quality treatment.

"New Hampshire voters play a special role is selecting the next President," said Rebecca Gray, volunteer and former President, VT-NH Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. "Let's use that unique opportunity -- and the power of millions of survivors and their loved ones who are affected by breast cancer -- to make the fight against this disease a top priority in the White House."

In the United States, a woman has about a 13 percent risk -- or one in eight -- of developing breast cancer in her lifetime. Low-income women are more likely to be diagnosed with late-stage breast cancer and are three times more likely to die from the disease.

About Susan G. Komen for the Cure

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
