State Representative Cheryl Grossman (R-Grove City) was recently presented the 2011 Public Service Award by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Columbus Affiliate.

The award recognizes Grossman’s leadership on breast cancer issues, particularly the importance of promoting early detection and screenings. She has engaged in site visits to Komen grantees to learn more about the critical screening services that are funded through state programs and proceeds from events such as the Race for the Cure.

“I am humbled and grateful to receive this award. It was phenomenal to see more than 50,000 participants with the Komen Race for the Cure sharing such incredible support for each other. I feel very strongly that through the efforts of many, we will soon see a cure for this horrible disease,” Rep. Grossman said.

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Columbus Affiliate serves 30 counties in central and southeastern Ohio with grants and direct support for breast cancer education activities, early detection and prevention programs, treatment assistance and counseling services.
