SAN ANTONIO – The South High Extension Education Association and the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Bexar County, will present the Passionately Pink Event on Jan. 10 at Good News Lutheran Church, 11020 S. U.S. Highway 181 (Old Corpus Christi Highway) in San Antonio.
This cancer-awareness program begins at 6:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public, but targeted at women over 40.
“The event is to encourage women to get regular mammograms and Pap tests for the early detection of breast and cervical cancer when these diseases are most curable,” said Dr. Connie Sheppard, AgriLife Extension agent for family and consumer sciences, Bexar County.
Sheppard said the program will provide attendees with information on the importance of mammograms and other early forms of detection of breast cancer.
She added that the event will be a “party” format and will include recipes and other fun activities in addition to experts representing Susan G. Komen for the Cure cancer foundation providing important information concerning cancer awareness.
“Attendees can also learn about financial resources and area services that could help them get better access to these important screenings,” she added.
