Date:11/7/2007

Grassroots Activism, Cancer Group Partnerships and Bi-Partisan Support Key

to Passage of Landmark Cancer Research Legislation

DALLAS, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Susan G. Komen for the Cure, together with its 12 Texas Affiliates, commends Texas voters for passing Proposition 15, bringing $3 billion into Texas-based cancer research and programs and making the state a leader in the cancer movement.

Jane Nelson (R-Lewisville), Sen. Kirk Watson (D-Austin), Rep. Patrick Rose (D-Dripping Springs), Rep. Jim Keffer (R-Eastland), Rep. D
