Tom Joyner Morning Show Promotes Sister Study! (813 hits)

The Time to Act is NOW!
Over the past year, BlackAmericaWeb.com and the Tom Joyner Morning Show have been actively involved in the effort to enroll more black women in the Sister Study, the only long-term study in the United States and Puerto Rico of women ages 35 to 74 who’ve never had breast cancer but whose sisters have had the disease.

Researchers believe the Sister Study will help us better understand reasons women get breast cancer, especially reasons that concern environment and genes. Results from the Sister Study may also help us understand reasons women get other diseases such as heart disease and other types of cancer. Knowledge gained from the Sister Study will be used to develop recommendations for preventing breast cancer in the future and promoting good health for women.

Let’s get busy! The Sister Study makes it easy to help you encourage others to join by providing printed materials. The most popular items are the brochures, DVD, fans, bookmarks and pink ribbon nail files. Partner kits are available for organizations that want to give a group presentation. Here are three easy ways to get materials to share, all free of charge!

Call the Sister Study at 1-877-4-SISTER (1-877-474-7837) and place your order for materials TODAY!

What can you do?
