Breast Cancer Education & Awareness Program

The Breast cancer awareness training is made possible by a grant from the Pittsburgh Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the cure Foundation and is intended for women with disabilities, special needs, and their family and friends. “All women of all abilities” need this life saving information. It is no enough to receive a yearly mammogram. Come learn techniques for early detection of breast cancer, ease the fears of doctor exams and mammograms, ask questions and discus your concerns of breast cancer.

Staff, caregivers, and family members are welcome to learn this important life saving information.

Additional trainings can be custom designed to meet your group’s needs. i.e. lunch time trainings at a workshop or day program, or evening trainings at group homes.
