Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R) Strengthens Global Mission With Addition of Vice President, International
Date:10/29/2008

"Susan G. Komen for the Cure has made amazing strides in 26 years, and the result has been better detection, better treatments and higher survival rates for this disease in the United States," said Hewko. "Now is the time to expand to other countries, particularly to developing countries where 70 percent of new global breast cancer cases are expected to originate and where mortality rates are often two to three times higher than in developed countries."

Susan G. Komen for the Cure International Outreach

With more than 1 million women worldwide receiving a breast cancer diagnosis each year, Komen for the Cure believes it is critical to increase advocacy for, and education about, this life-threatening disease. Hewko will seek to build upon the growing influence of Susan G. Komen for the Cure across the globe.

-- Last year, during Komen's first-ever Global Advocate Summit in

Budapest, Hungary, Komen launched an eight-country pilot program - the

Global Initiative for Breast Cancer Awareness - to help countries

decrease breast cancer mortality rates. Countries participating in this

initiative include Brazil, Costa Rica, Jordan, Mexico, Romania, Saudi

Arabia, Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates.

-- Earlier this year, Komen announced the launch of the Susan G. Komen for

the Cure Global Promise Fund(R), which will be central to the

organization's international outreach. The Fund will provide grants

to non-governmental organizations to develop and implement breast health

and breast cancer programs, and services in countries experiencing high

breast cancer incidence and death rates.

-- Just this month, Moddelmog led a delegation of physicians, researchers,

advocates, survivors and celebrities, including actress Gabrielle Union,

philanthropist Malaak Rock, wife of comedian Chris Rock, and breast

cancer
