Susan G. Komen gives $500K for breast cancer screenings

A dozen local organizations will share more than $500,000 in grant money from Susan G. Komen for the Cure to fund breast cancer screenings in San Diego, it was announced Thursday.

Officials at the nonprofit said the grants will help offset state budget cuts for breast cancer screening programs in California.

“As we face the repercussions of major budget cuts and fundraising challenges as a result of the economy, it is important for San Diegans to realize that in these tough times, the need for health services increases,” said Laura Farmer Sherman, executive director of Susan G. Komen for the Cure San Diego.

“We are challenging the community to step up and support us in our efforts to ensure that everyone has access to the services they need to live long healthy lives,” she said.

The grant recipients are:
- La Maestra Family Clinic;
- Palomar Pomerado Health Development;
- Council of Community Clinics;
- Sharp HealthCare Foundation;
- Vista Community Clinic;
- Scripps Health, Scripps Cancer Center;
- San Diego County Medical Society Foundation;
- Grossmont Hospital Foundation;
