Women's Health Empowerment Program Raises Awareness about Breast Cancer,

Addresses Challenges to Access, Screening and Treatment

BUDAPEST, Hungary, July 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R), the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, today awarded a USD $100,000 grant to the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), a 94-year-old, overseas, humanitarian aid organization which works in more than 60 countries worldwide. The grant, which solidifies the fifth year of partnership between Komen for the Cure and JDC, will help sustain the critical work of the Women's Health Empowerment Program (WHEP), an initiative to promote breast cancer awareness and early detection. It also will expand the program's reach into Hungary's rural communities, where access to screening facilities and breast health information is extremely limited.

"Breast cancer is one of the deadliest diseases in Hungary, killing more than 2,000 women each year," said Susan G. Komen for the Cure Founder and breast cancer survivor Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker. "The need to provide women -- regardless of where they live or their socioeconomic status -- equal access to screening and an equal opportunity to beat a breast cancer diagnosis has never been greater." Ambassador Brinker announced the gift at a press conference held at Gerbeaud House this morning.

"The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee established WHEP more than a decade ago as part of our mission to support and empower vulnerable populations around the world. Our ongoing partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which began in 2004, has enabled JDC to continue to provide critical assistance to women who might otherwise have no chance at survival," said Steve Schwager, Chief Executive Of
