Promoting Breast Cancer Awareness
and Celebrating Survivors

2016 Praise is the Cure® Information - Breast Cancer Awareness Day Details

Praise Is The Cure® Breast Cancer Awareness Day
September 25, 2016

This citywide educational outreach effort is supported by a wide array of city officials, hundreds of survivors, volunteers, and other advocates who visit faith-based organizations and make presentations to those attending worship services on this Sunday.


The information distributed to parishioners provides important life-saving information on breast health. The presentations encourage women to be more open emotionally and spiritually. It allows women and others to see the level of support and involvement that women and families require to get through the process of overcoming breast cancer. Most important, women and others will understand that breast cancer is not a death sentence and early detection can save lives.
