SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a nonprofit foundation devoted to breast cancer research and treatment, announced Friday it is reversing its decision to eliminate grants it had been making to Planned Parenthood.
"I'm just very thankful that they changed their mind," said Barbara Grier, a breast cancer survivor.
Grier was a single mom of four, 10 years ago, when she discovered a lump in her breast. She said she was uninsured at the time and did not know where to go for medical help.
"I started out at the breast center, and they referred me to the American Cancer Society, who referred me to Planned Parenthood," said Grier.
Grier said Planned Parenthood provided the funding and guidance she needed to make it through her treatments. She is now cancer free.
