We are so pleased to announce that Planned Parenthood and Susan G. Komen for the Cure will continue to work together to meet women’s breast health needs throughout Orange County and the nation.
The outpouring of support for women in need of life-saving breast cancer screening and education this week has been astonishing and is a testament to our nation’s compassion and sincerity!
What these past few days have demonstrated is the deep resolve all Americans share in the fight against breast cancer.
The Komen Orange County 2012 grants to Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties were never in jeopardy and are specific to supporting breast health services for women in need. The most important thing now is to refocus on helping women and providing access to breast health care for everyone.
Over the last three days, Planned Parenthood of Orange and San Bernardino Counties and the Orange County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure have received generous donations from concerned supporters, and we assure you that every dollar received at this time will go directly for breast exams, diagnostic services, breast health outreach and education so that more women can receive this critical care.
In short, we look forward to continuing our partnership in the fight against breast cancer and it is our hope that this outpouring of public support for the cause of breast cancer awareness will lead more women to detect breast cancer earlier, and will save more women’s lives.
