CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CURE Media Group, which reaches over 1 million patients, survivors and caregivers across an industry-leading multimedia platform devoted solely to cancer updates and research, announces the addition of the Susan G. Komen Florida to its Strategic Alliance Partnership (SAP) program.
“We are proud to partner with Susan G. Komen Florida,” said Michael J. Hennessy Jr., president of MJH Associates, Inc., parent company of CURE Media Group. “This is the fourth Susan G. Komen affiliate we are working with. We really enjoy collaborating with this amazing foundation to help further their mission of helping patients with breast cancer.”
Susan G. Komen Florida serves 64 counties in Florida as the local first responders to breast cancer for women and men who need screening, diagnostic and support services. Seventy-five percent of funds raised stay in Florida to fund educational initiatives, screening and treatment programs, as well as provide financial and emotional support to those affected and their families. The remaining 25% goes to the Susan G. Komen Grants Program to fund cutting-edge breast cancer research. With key investments across the state, Komen Florida seeks to impact the approximately 13,700 women in Florida who are diagnosed each year, ensuring that the most vulnerable women have access to high-quality screenings, diagnostics and treatment.
CURE Media Group is also partnered with Susan G. Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, which serves the Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties, the 3 counties in Florida that the Florida affiliate does not cover.
“As the first responders to care for those affected by breast cancer, we are proud to partner with CURE Media to bring the most current information on treatment options, treatment assistance programs available, and advances in the field to readers,” said Kate Watt, Komen Florida Executive Director. “We work tirelessly to generate awareness of this disease through education and the creation of innovative and impactful programming. It is estimated that breast cancer deaths can be reduced by as much as one-third with early detection and timely care. Together with CURE, we can reach an even greater number of men and women help to grow this number of survivors.”
The CURE Media Group SAP program builds a community of advocacy groups, medical associations and medical institutions to foster collaboration and an open exchange of information among trusted peers, for the ultimate benefit of patients and their families. As part of this joint effort, CURE Media Group will work with Susan G. Komen Florida and support them in helping patients with breast cancer.
