Local Komen Office: Never Funded PPAZ But We Like Each Other

Posted By on Thu, Feb 2, 2012 at 11:00 AM

Although calls to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Southern Arizona affiliate office were not returned, yesterday the group put up a notice on its Facebook page to explain its relationship with Planned Parenthood Southern Arizona and where funds go locally that are raised in Tucson:

Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Southern Arizona Affiliate
A message to all of our supporters:

We've had lots of calls and posts about the news that Planned Parenthood will no longer receive funding from Komen Affiliates.

Know that nothing changes here in Southern Arizona, where we have never funded Planned Parenthood Arizona, and nor have they applied for a grant from us. Relations with PPAZ are very good; they have assured us today that Komen SAZ's work and mission have our full support and that they encourage their own supporters to continue donating to Komen.

If you have any concerns, please let us know and we will forward them on to our national Komen office in Dallas. Meantime, know that we continue on our mission -with your much-needed help - to provide uninsured and under-insured women with free mammograms and treatment, and to guide them through our healthcare maze.

And know that 75 cents on every dollar donated stays here in the community, with the other 25 cents going towards research.

Yours sincerely, the Komen SAZ team
