How are the Funds Raised used in the Fight Against Breast Cancer? A message from Judie Vivian, Volunteer OrganizerStandup for the Cure forwards 100% of the donations and proceeds from the event to the Orange County Affiliate of Susan G Komen for the Cure. The event is run by volunteers and 'Gift in Kind' donations. As noted on Komen OC's web site, 25% of all funds received go towards Breast Cancer research and Komen is the largest supporter of research in the USA . The remaining 75% is for Breast Health Services for local women. The Komen Grant process: RFP's are submitted by local clinics to Komen OC for grants to be able to offer breast health services to under-insured or uninsured women. These grant applications are carefully reviewed by the Komen OC Grant Review Committee and if approved and granted, their performance is carefully monitored all year to ensure proper use of those funds per their RFP commitments. The Grant are awarded each December and you are most welcome to attend the breakfast to meet each of the grantees and hear first hand about their programs. Last year Komen OC granted over $1 million to local clinics! On average, a donation of $125 covers the cost of a mammogram, but there are also many other ways Komen OC helps women undergoing treatment such as helping them with hats, wigs and scarves while undergoing chemotherapy, outreach education programs to encourage early detection and support groups. As a breast cancer survivor myself, I feel that this is the most effective use of our funds raised and am committed to the fight against breast cancer for all of us, since 1 in 8 are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime while only 1 in 5 have health insurance in Orange County. I have served on Komen OC's Grant Review Committee and now serve on their Board of Directors so that I can be absolutely sure of how and where our donation funds are spent. Frankly this is a lot now I'm 64 but I'm determined to make a difference for women and breast cancer survivors and hope that the Standup for the Cure approach will help raise awareness and educate younger people about the importance of early detection and what to do if they have no health insurance. Let us know your ideas on how we can make the difference in this important fight against breast cancer. Mahalo! Judie
