Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure & Doctors for the Cure Program
Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women in the United States and is a particularly deadly disease among women of Native Hawaiian ancestry. Dr. Angela Chin has been a long-time supporter of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and the Doctors for the Cure program.
As a doctor, Dr. Chin knows the importance of all-around health in reducing the risk factors associated with breast cancer and other diseases. She sat down with host Jobeth Devera to talk about the importance of supporting Komen’s vision to end breast cancer forever. As a participating Doctors for the Cure physician, Dr. Chin is committed to the Komen fight and is the honorary chair of this year’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Funds from the race help provide breast cancer screening, education, medical services and research, as well as financial and emotional support to women with breast cancer. In fact, 75 percent of the money raised each year is put to work right here in Hawaii, providing underserved patients with low- or no-cost screening, diagnosis and treatment.
Komen Hawaii also advocates for research funding and access to affordable, high-quality breast health and cancer care services. Komen Hawaii is looking for volunteers who are passionate about the movement and are available to volunteer for the Race for the Cure. To Register for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure that takes place on October 14, 2018, at Kapiolani Park, go to komenhawaii.org.
