Date:1/10/2008

San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure Participates in Nationwide Campaign Challenging U.S. to Close the Gaps in

Breast Cancer Care, Survival

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- On Jan. 11, elected officials will join advocates from the San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to bathe City Hall in pink, highlighting the urgent need to address disparities in breast cancer early detection and treatment. Each year in California, more than 19,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 4,000 die from the disease.

On Jan. 17 and 18, hundreds of representatives from Komen Affiliates throughout the state will travel to the State Capitol in Sacramento to challenge decision makers to "close the gaps" in policy and funding so that more women in California have access to quality breast health care and information. In preparation for the trip to Sacramento, the Komen San Francisco Affiliate has chosen to light San Francisco City Hall as a symbolic -- and highly visible -- connection between policymakers and the breast cancer movement.

These events mark the eighteenth stop of the Komen Community Challenge, a 25-city campaign to elevate breast cancer on the national agenda and to draw attention to disparities in breast cancer mortality. Nationwide, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Uninsured women are more likely to receive a late-stage breast cancer diagnosis and are 30 to 50 percent more likely to die from the disease than women with insurance.

WHAT: Press conference and lighting of San Francisco City Hall to elevate

breast cancer awareness and advocacy in the city of San Francisco.

WHO: Evaon Wong-Kim, President of Komen San Francisco Bay A
