GBUAHN goes pink with Second Chance Ministries

GBUAHN goes pink with Second Chance Ministries

Free mammograms and Breast Cancer Awareness Month activities

WHAT: The Greater Buffalo United Accountable Healthcare Network (GBUAHN), in partnership with United Healthcare, is going pink with Second Chance Ministries. The organizations are holding a breast cancer awareness event that includes: free screenings, presentations/testimonials by male and female breast cancer survivors, educational materials, information on prevention, Medicaid and Medicare information, and a complimentary dinner.

WHY:

A recent Susan G. Komen survey of WNYers revealed that low income/medically underserved women in the city of Buffalo are the least likely to understand the importance of mammograms/screening and are unclear about breast cancer risk factors. This event will provide breast cancer education and prevention advice. Representatives of GBUAHN and United Healthcare will offer information on enrolling in Medicaid/Medicare. A male breast cancer survivor will tell his story; female breast cancer survivors will also provide testimonials. The founder of Our Curls, a not-for-profit that empowers women of color diagnosed with cancer, will also speak. Our Curls offers free ethnic wigs, makeovers, and support groups.

WHO: Male and female breast cancer survivors
