July 16: Sisters By Choice Pink Ribbon 5k

Jul 7, 2016

Sisters By Choice is an Atlanta, GA grass roots organization designed to help women in the community take control of their health relative to breast cancer. On The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, Saturday, July 9 at 7:00 a.m.,  I'll talk with Dr. Yara Robertson of Sisters By Choice.  She shares with us information about how the organization started as a support group for young cancer survivors and then became so much more. 

Your Health Connection on WCLK featured a timely and important discussion of triple negative breast cancer for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  In a fascinating twist for listeners, our host JaQuitta Williams was also the guest survivor featured on the program.   She is a survivor of this particularly tough form of the disease, which disproportionately affects young people and African Americans.

JaQuitta was joined by leading Atlanta Surgeon Dr. Rogsbert Phillips-Reed, who operated on her and has helped many Atlantans through the ordeal of breast cancer over the years.
