This segment of Access Houston we welcome the lovely Pearl Burton, who was diagnosed with stage II ductal carcinoma insitu in 2008 and is now an advocate for breast cancer awareness. Pearl let’s us know about the Know Your Girls campaign, which brings awareness to breast cancer for black women in conjunction with Susan G. Komen and the Ad Council’s Breast Cancer Risk Education campaign.
Our next conversation is with Shantera Chatman, founder of The Chatman Women’s Foundation, to talk about the shopping event that will benefit the women of the Chatman Women’s Foundation, which helps women that may have been in shelters. Shantera is currently on the EmpowHERing YOU Tour which has successfully stopped in Houston, Atlanta, College Station, and Orlando.
Thank you for listening!
