CBS 58 and Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Awareness Support Line

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- In honor of breast cancer awareness month, CBS 58 is teaming up with Susan G. Komen of Wisconsin to host a support line October 11 to help you get some answers. 

It’s important for everyone to understand breast cancer, and to take action in prevention and detection. Tune in beginning at 6:00 a.m. to hear details on why knowing your family history of breast cancer is important, when and where to get screened, learn signs of breast cancer that you can see, and learn healthy lifestyle choices that may reduce your risk of breast cancer. 

If you or someone you love has recently been diagnosed, experts will be on the line from 6:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., and again from 4:00-6:00 p.m. Give us a call at 414-777-5801. 

Callers can talk openly about breast cancer and discuss barriers that prevent women from getting breast exams, such as fear, financial concerns, or not having enough time. Participants will also learn about the benefits of yearly screenings. At the end of the Conversation, participants will have the tools to break down these barriers. Other key takeaway messages include: knowing your personal risk of breast cancer, understanding screening recommendations, engaging in healthy lifestyle behaviors to reduce risk and empowering women to be their own health advocates.Callers can talk openly about breast cancer and discuss barriers that prevent women from getting breast exams, such as fear, financial concerns, or not having enough time.
