Annual Celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month to be held

Members of the community are invited to attend the Florida Health Department's annual celebration of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, on Friday, Oct. 23, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Four Freedoms Park, Madison, Fl. The theme is “Pink is the New Power.” By using the theme “new power” the Florida Health Department (FOH) hopes to encourage all women to form new habits, namely, to examine their breasts monthly, to see a physician for clinical breast exams regularly and to receive annual mammograms. The Florida Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (FBCCEDP) and the City of Madison has partnered in making this event a success. Setup time for all vendors and/or participants will be from 11 a.m. - 12 p.m. Tables and two chairs will be provided. The press conference begins at 12:30 p.m. and will include some of the local government representatives as well as breast cancer survivors. Free health screenings will be available. Roshanda Denson, cancer survivor and Donna Melgaard, nursing director at the FOH, will be speaking at this event. For more information, contact Shaundra Buggs at (850) 606-8112 or at shaundra.buggs@flhealth.gov, or Sandra G. Saunders at (850) 606-8115 or at sandra.saunders@flhealth.gov.
