Susan G. Komen for the Cure Advocacy Alliance Suggests Questions for Tonight's Presidential Debate
Date:4/16/2008

DALLAS, April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Tonight in Philadelphia Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama square off for another Democratic debate, and the fourth one featuring just the two candidates. While none of the previous 20 forums touched on a topic of great concern to a vast majority of voters -- breast cancer -- Susan G. Komen for the Cure Advocacy Alliance encourages this important discussion to take place this evening.

"Breast cancer touches each of us in some way, and discovering and delivering its cures should be a national priority," said Shelley Fuld Nasso, director of public policy for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Advocacy Alliance. "Voters deserve to hear how the candidates would address this critical issue."

The Komen Advocacy Alliance suggests the debate's moderators, Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos, pose the following questions:

-- Federal funding for cancer research has stagnated over the past five

years. Coupled with rising health care costs, this has resulted in

researchers scaling back their work and slowing clinical trials that

could lead to life-saving treatments. As president, what will you do

to reenergize cancer research?

-- Women without insurance, racial and ethnic minorities and women in

underserved areas are less likely to receive the care they need and are

more likely to die from the disease. What do you propose to do to

close the gaps and end the disparities that make breast cancer deadlier

for some women than others?

-- Patient navigators, who help guide patients through the complicated

health care system, are critical to address barriers to quality care,

particularly for minority and underserved patients who often do not

speak
