Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon Held at Broad St. United Methodist Church

Survivors, supporters, and health care professionals came out for food and fellowship Thursday, October 20 at the Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon held at Broad St. UMC. Straight Fork CEOS member Imogene Wimer welcomed everyone and, after the blessing, SJMH Marketing Director and Weston Mayor Julia Spelsburg introduced the speakers.

West Virginia Delegate Peggy Donaldson Smith read a proclamation from Governor Earl Ray Tomblins Office, followed by Lewis County Commission President Agnes Queens proclamation on behalf of the county and the City of Weston, announcing October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Kathy Molnar of the American Cancer Society urged everyone to educate people on the importance of early detection. Molnar said 30 percent of women are not getting screenings, and there is no reason not to, as most screenings are covered by insurance or programs for low-income residents.
