Community Corner: MS proclaims October 19th as National Mammography Day!

Ms. Freddie White-Johnson is making it her mission to screen every woman in Mississippi through her Avon BHOP funded RESOLUTION - BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTHprogram, the Fannie Lou Hamer Cancer Foundation. The agency had faced some staffing challenges this past quarter and that did not slow Ms. Freddie down one bit! She proudly forwarded the Proclamation below and we extend our gratitude to her and her tireless dedication to the underserved, not only in her community but throughout the State of Mississippi.

Congratulations to Ms. White-Johnson and the entire Fannie Lou Hammer Cancer Foundation on this fantastic achievement!
