Changing the View of Breast Cancer as a “Death Penalty” Among African Women
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. –Thousands of people who were born in Africa call the metro home, and many don’t have the understanding of diseases and what to do about them that people born in America have.
FOX 4 Medical Reporter Meryl Lin McKean tells us about an effort to educate African-born women that breast cancer is not a “death penalty.”
The free educational program will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 4, at St. Andrew’s Christian Church, 13890 W. 127th Street in Olathe, Kansas.
Free mammograms and clinical breast exams will be offered on Friday, August 17, at the church. To schedule, contact Florence at 913-302-8710.
