For Immediate Release: February 5, 2009
Sen. Judy Eason McIntyre
Senator Invites Breast Cancer Survivors
to Capitol Event
As a breast cancer survivor, Senator Judy
Eason McIntyre knows the importance of early detection. She
works hard to help raise awareness within state government of
the disease as well as find funding and gain support for those
Oklahomans diagnosed with breast cancer.
April 21, 2009 has been designated as “Breast
Cancer Awareness Day at the Capitol”, and breast cancer
support groups, organizations, clinics and programs are invited
to take part. The displays of these organizations will fill the
fourth floor rotunda as they unite to show that Oklahomans are
doing whatever possible to help their sisters and brothers who
face this disease.
In an effort to personalize breast cancer for Oklahoma’s
senators and representatives, Sen. Eason McIntyre is looking to
recruit at least two individuals from every legislative district
in the state who have breast cancer or are survivors to come to
the Capitol on April 21st, meet their legislators, and put a “face”
to the disease.
“This is going to be a tremendous event that
will help educate our legislators on the impact breast cancer
is having on our state. It will also be a great tool for those
diagnosed with breast cancer to learn more about the disease,
what they can expect and what types of support are available in
the state,” said Eason McIntyre. “I hope we can get
lots of volunteers from around the state to come share their stories
with their legislators, and help us as we continue our fight against
this horrible disease.”
Sen. Eason McIntyre appointed Judi Grove, Founder
of Breast Impressions, Inc. to chair the event.
If you are a breast cancer survivor or part of a
support group, clinic, program or organization who would like
to take part in this important day, please contact Judi Grove
at 918-691-3874, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
