Breast Cancer Awareness at Central Baptist Church

Excluding skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women in the United States (men get it, too). 230,480 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in this country before this year ends.

Many groups, including the local Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure office located in the V.O. Dobbins Complex Tower, say it's important to catch breast cancer early with self examination.

On October 23, 2011, the Central Baptist Church in Riverview-Kingsport held a Breast Cancer Awareness service for our friends and neighbors who have breast cancer, and also those who lost their lives to the disease.

Please contact the American Cancer Society and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure agencies, to ask about self-examination techniques to help you spot breast cancer signs.

It could save your life.
