WHO: The Northwest Louisiana Affiliate of Susan G. Komen and local churches.
WHAT: Pink Sunday is a grassroots effort with local churches to educate the members of their respective congregations on breast health and breast cancer. This effort is to address the high breast cancer mortality rate among women in the ten parish service area of the Northwest Louisiana Affiliate. The affiliate will provide free breast health information packets to the churches upon request. Any church in the affiliate service area may participate in this program. Churches also have the opportunity to celebrate survivors that day in their congregation as well as honor those who have lost their battle. Each individual church is responsible for coordinating their own event. There are over seventy-five participating churches in this year’s Pink Sunday events.
WHEN: Sunday, May 17, 2015
WHERE: Service area includes the following parishes: Caddo, Bienville, Bossier, Webster, Claiborne, De Soto, Red River, Winn, Sabine, and Natchitoches
WHY: Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer found in women in the United States and the leading cause of death among women between 40 and 59 years old. Louisiana has the highest death rate from breast cancer in the U.S. Early detection is the key to survival. One in eight women will be diagnosed with this disease.
IMPORTANT DATES: Breast Cancer Survivor Lunch, June 20. Friday in Pink, September 11. Race for the Cure, September 26. For more information, please call Lindsay Dean, Executive Director at (318) 220-7050 or send an email to info. For more information, please visit www.komennwla.org.
