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

English, have low literacy skills, are uninsured, and/or live

long distances from treatment centers. Congress passed the Patient

Navigator Act in 2005, and authorized $25 million for these important

facilitators, but they have yet to actually fund them. What will you

do to ensure that the promise of the Patient Navigation Act is not an

empty one?

A nationwide survey commissioned by the Komen Advocacy Alliance revealed voters' attitudes about health care, breast cancer and the 2008 election. More than 90 percent of voters want the federal government to pay more attention to breast cancer research, screening and access to quality care for all. A majority of voters (62 percent) believe breast cancer is the most critical health problem facing women today. This is also true among low-income, minority and underserved populations surveyed, which are more likely to die from breast cancer than white women.

About the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Advocacy Alliance

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982 that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and since then the organization has been at the forefront of a global fight against breast cancer. Through the newly formed Susan G. Komen for the Cure Advocacy Alliance, a tax-exempt, 501c4 nonpartisan organization, Komen for the Cure is taking the next logical next step in its evolution: expanding its reach in the health policies arena.
