BENEFITING: Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute
Join Mix 92.3 for our annual Cracker Barrel Sista Strut, kicking off at Grand Circus Park on August 26th at 10a. All proceeds will go to Karmanos Cancer Institute to help underprivileged African American women in our community that are battling breast cancer.
WHAT DOES MY DONATION DO TO HELP DETROIT?
Karmanos saves lives. Many of the women who are diagnosed with breast cancer cannot afford treatment, and their treatment is not covered by Medicaid. They are completely on their own. That’s where the Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program comes in.
38% of the women who enrolled in the Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program at Karmanos will not qualify for treatment through Medicaid if diagnosed with cancer. To date, more than half of those women have been helped through additional funding. But there is so much more work to be done. Donations from the Sista Strut will assist in helping the BCCCP continue to fill this gap to give women who have been diagnosed with cancer access to life saving treatment.
We walk to raise awareness. We walk to raise funds. WE WALK TO SAVE LIVES.
