Basseterre, St. Kitts, September 30, 2020 (SKNVIBES)
On the eve of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Essence of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation has launched its mammogram campaign. As part of this campaign, a billboard has been erected at the roundabout leading to St. Peter’s. The billboard encourages women, that “Feel a lump”, to schedule a mammogram through their physician.
“From our inception in 2009, Essence of Hope has been continuously and strongly encouraging women to do breast self-examinations and if they feel a lump, to get a mammogram,” said Ms Pam Hendrickson, Chair of Essence of Hope. “Sadly, we are still seeing many women diagnosed with breast cancer between the ages of 40-75+ years old who have never had one mammogram prior to their diagnosis.”
