Celebrating Our Survivors: Freda McClean

Today, as Alpha Kappa Alpha acknowledges Breast Cancer Impact Day, Rho Gamma Omega joins in promoting awareness. Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lifetime and 1 in 1,000 men will as well? If you are a woman who is at least 40 years of age (or younger if there is a family history), please schedule a mammogram today!

"I am a 38 year breast cancer survivor.  Breast cancer is a serious and deadly disease. My sister, Anita Isaacs Candler, fought a valiant but losing  battle last year against metastatic breast cancer. Thus, I encourage all my African American sisters to become familiar with their bodies, especially their breasts. Examine your breast once a month in the shower or laying down in the bed using the guidelines that have been established by the American Cancer Society. If you feel something is different , contact your primary physician asap and request a mammogram. It may save your life."
