Komen NC Triangle Affiliate Joins Nationwide Campaign to Close the Gaps that Make Breast Cancer Deadlier for Low-Income Women and Women of Color

RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The North Carolina Triangle Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure today joined Governor Easley to proclaim Oct. 15-21, 2007 as Pink Ribbon Week. The proclamation and a Monday evening Executive Mansion reception with First Lady Mary Easley marked Raleigh's participation in the Komen Community Challenge, a national campaign to close the gaps in research, policy and access to quality care that make breast cancer deadlier for some women than for others.

Following the Governor's proclamation, speakers addressed the success of North Carolina's Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP). The BCCCP program, which provides cancer screening and detection services for low-income and uninsured women, was appropriated $4 million over two years in the state budget in July, expanding its services to an additional 8,000 North Carolinians. Ms. Wanda Williams, a breast cancer survivor, shared her story of how the program provided her with life saving, early detection services when she would have otherwise had no access to screening or care.

Speakers at both the proclamation press conference and reception cited shocking racial disparities in breast cancer mortality rates and tremendous barriers that prevent low-income women from receiving care. According to the National Cancer Institute, African American women in North Carolina are dying of breast cancer at a higher rate (34 per 100,000) than their Caucasian counterparts (24 per 100,000).

"North Carolina has been hard hit by breast cancer and low-income women and women of color have been hit the hardest. We need to close the gaps in research, policy and access
