PA. LAWMAKER WORKS WITH BREAST CANCER GROUP FOR EARLY DETECTION

Pennsylvania Senate Majority Leader Kim Ward, who is a breast cancer survivor, is working with the PA Breast Cancer Coalition to raise awareness for early detection. The group will release a series of videos that provide information about breast cancer and also encourage people to get screened. Coalition President Pat Halpin-Murphy says more than 60 percent of patients delayed their screenings during COVID. She adds that with early diagnosis, the disease is “very, very treatable.”
