Susan G. Komen for the Cure Awards San Diego Organizations Nearly $1 Million to Fight Breast Cancer
Date:4/8/2008

of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, San Diego. "Therefore, the mantra in our fight is early detection. We have the power to make a difference for breast cancer patients by providing grants to local organizations and helping ensure access to our network of local clinics, researchers and businesses who offer thousands of uninsured or underinsured women life saving treatment, care and services."

The 2008 grants are being awarded to local organizations providing for specific areas of help that were identified in an extensive community assessment taken by Komen for the Cure, San Diego. The assessment, taken every two years, provides direction for the non-profit organization's work -- establishing the need for fundraising, education programs, priorities for funding grants and as a guide to decision making. The grants will be given at a "Light the Night Pink" reception on Thursday, April 10, 2008. In celebration of Light San Diego Pink Day, the San Diego Administration Building will be lit in a pink hue.
