Unfortunately it took a few diagnoses and even deaths to realize how important cancer awareness is to not just me, but to Latinos. That's why I'm making it an effort to get more involved and bring awareness to all Latinos. Whether it's sending a Tweet, fundraising or volunteering at events, it's so important to stay involved.
On Saturday, March 12th, 2011, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure presents its annual Latinas United for the Cure. This year, the event will offer two general assembly seminars (breakfast & lunch) plus specialized group sessions in English and Spanish. The 2011 Latinas United for the Cure has been designed to meet the growing diversity of needs in the Latina community--whether you are a survivor, taking the breast cancer journey with a loved one or being proactive in your own breast health. The event will be held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown on 12th & Market.
