PA Breast Cancer Coalition: Walking from Philly to Harrisburg for the Cause!


Helen Michener, a three-year breast cancer survivor, recently finished a walk from Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell to the State Capitol in Harrisburg. An indefatigable fundraiser for the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition, Helen’s Freedom From Breast Cancer: A Survivor’s Walk has raised money for the Coalition.

A nurse by training, she’s been promoting the importance of early detection and recommended cancer screenings.

“People can be apprehensive, even fearful, about getting a mammogram or any cancer screening,”acknowledged Helen Michener.

“They’re afraid of what they may find. I always say not knowing won’t save you, but knowing might!”

Helen shared her experience with us today on the show. Be sure to watch the video above to hear her story.
