                              Our Impact
Research - Finding the Cures

    Komen for the Cure funded research
    conducted by some of earliest pioneers
    in targeted therapies.

         Early work diagnosing HER 2 positive breast
          cancer and using drug Herceptin to treat it.

         Dr. Judah Folkman’s concept that tumors need
          blood supply to continue to grow – years later,
          resulted in effective treatments such as
          Avastin.

         First supporters of Dr. V. Craig Jordan –
          pioneered use of tamoxifen as a hormonal breast
          cancer treatment. A drug that blocks hormones
          from ―feeding‖ tumors.

         Komen funds helped Dr. Angela Brodie pioneer
          discovery of aromatase inhibitors, which can
          keep cancer from recurring.

•    High levels of poverty and lack insurance.

     transportation issues.

•    Hispanics comprise a high percent of the residents;
     immigration issues that limit their access to care

•    Indian reservations lie within 3 of the counties with 2
     Indian Health Service hospitals; however, little is known
     about the breast health needs of the Native American women.

            Project Description:
                       Program Evaluation
      Evaluation is ―the comparison of an
     objective of interest against a
     standard of acceptability‖ (Green & Lewis)
     Two types
      – Process evaluation: Identifies strengths
        and weaknesses of a program, processes of
        providing services and how outcomes are
        produced;
      – Impact evaluation: Compares program
        results against the objectives

      – Temptation is to put this first —
        DON’T.

      Projects become reality because the central
        idea is sold, not because the proposal is
     cheap!

       Be realistic!      Ask for what you need

       Justify expenses — Do they follow with the
        narrative?

       Use budget forms provided



We are on a mission.
            Helpful Hints
    Read the RFA carefully — follow ALL
  directions.
   Do not ask for items that the grant
  excludes.
   Be innovative, passionate, realistic,
  specific.
    Write clearly: use the active, rather than
      passive voice.
   Avoid jargon; spell out acronyms on first
  use.
    Consider headings to improve readability.
        Think like a reviewer: make it clear, easy
      on a read, and organized.
We areto mission.
                   Proof Reading the
                       Proposal
      Allow sufficient time to put the completed application
     aside, and then edit it from a fresh vantage point.
      Try proofreading by reading the application aloud.
      Scour the grant proposal for typos, grammatical
     mistakes or sloppy formatting.
      Ask someone in your organization, but not part of the
     proposal committee, to perform a final proofread of the
     entire grant application. It should be easy to understand
     by all.
