EDUCATION is the key to AWARENESS and EARLY DETECTION
Our Be Aware Project is designed to inform individuals of all races, religions and genders, the importance of performing monthly self exams, early detection, seeking treatment immediately and gaining awareness. We call this practicing Self Health.
Part of the project is our Four Corners Program designed to bring the cancer support services located in the suburbs into the inner city through partnerships with area churches.
Another component of the Be Aware Project is our MEN F.L.O.W. Workshops (Fellas Learning Overcoming Ways) These are men-only workshops for discussing cancer-related information and issues. The workshops are catered for men, by men, and about men.
Through our project, personal cancer stories are told of mindset growth prior, during, and after treatment and medical professionals are invited so share their expertise with inner city cancer patients.
