“This is a fun way to get kids involved in promoting breast cancer awareness and showcasing their talent,” says Morgan Roberts, Employee Wellness Assistant and Breast Cancer Awareness Committee member. “It’s important that women and their families are not only informed about how to treat breast cancer, but more importantly how to take preventative steps and detect it early.”
