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.
