This program provides information on the importance of breast cancer detection, prevention, and treatment. Viewers will learn important information about breast cancer including: what it is, how it is treated, how to reduce the chances of getting it, and how to connect with available resources for individuals and families.
Learn more about breast cancer by watching these interviews with breast cancer survivors. They share their story and experiences with detection and treatment and can be a source of insight and hope for viewers that have been touched with breast cancer.

With this program, we not only want to educate people, we want them to know that there is hope and there are resources available to help both themselves and their family. To do this, we brought together local doctors, cancer experts, health care organizations, and, most importantly, breast cancer survivors to talk about the illness and their experiences.
We were able to do all of this because we were awarded a $100,000 grant by Susan G. Komen for the Cure Minnesota® to increase awareness of breast cancer prevention, detection, and treatment with Latino, Hmong, Somali, and low literacy individuals and families in Minnesota. The grant underwrote a portion of the cost to produce a television show, public service announcement, online resources, and an ELL curriculum.
