Date:5/8/2008

Cancer Survivor Paints Vision of World Where Cancer is Easily Detected and

Treated

WASHINGTON, May 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hala Moddelmog, a 6-year cancer survivor and president and CEO of Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R), testified today before a special hearing of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions on the need for comprehensive legislation to address the nation's cancer crisis.

Moddelmog, who leads the world's largest breast cancer advocacy organization, challenged the Senators to unite behind the unique mandate of defeating cancer. The following are excerpts of her remarks as prepared for delivery:

"Past attempts by Congress to address cancer on a comprehensive basis have

perhaps been thwarted by strategies that were overly focused on specific

cancers. In speaking with my colleagues from a number of organizations,

I'm proud that we are here today calling for action now to end for all

time the ugly reality of this disease.

"In fact, early detection is the closest thing we have to a cure in many

cancers today, so it is time to let nothing stand in the way of finding a

cure, of discovering the critical biomarkers that might one day allow us

to detect cancer in a person's body with a simple blood test.

"It is time to unleash the amazing powers of science, technology and

medicine on finding radical new breakthroughs in early detection --

earlier than anything we know or even imagine today. Imagine cancer

detection so early that it can be fought with a simple injection. The

truth is, the treatments we have today do not even reach all Americans, so

as we unleash the science to find the cures, we also must close the gaps.

We must
