Friday afternoon the spotlight will focus on Breast Cancer Awareness at the Red River Parish Health Unit. The event will be from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.
Nursing Supervisor Yashica Turner says the event is titled “Posh, Pink and Pedicures.” She explained that, “We will have someone here who is going to do mini-pedis or painting toenails. And we’ll have information on breast cancer and it’s detection.”
“My Grandmother and Aunt died of breast cancer,” said Turner, “so that cause is really dear to my heart.” Turner added, “Come on by. Awareness is important and so is prevention. Louisiana is high on the mortality of women finding out that they have it.” She also said the state is high on the list with women seeking treatment once they find out they have it.
The Health Unit is located in the Administration Building next to the courthouse on Red Oak Road.
