Clinic gets funds from cancer group

management. The grant money was made available after the 2004 Komen

Orange County Race for the Cure, which raised $1.5 million.

to the Komen Foundation's National Award and Research Grant Program,

while the remaining 75% goes directly to breast cancer prevention and

treatment for Orange County women.
