On Oct, 14, The Community Sisterhood held its Annual Cancer Awareness Program. They enlisted the help of several local doctors in the area, including oncologist Dr. Patrick Staggs; St. Elizabeth Hospital's pulmonologist Dr. Bernard Brock; and, The Asthma Clinic's respiratory therapist Kevin Buckles, who provided education on Asthma and other respiratory disorders. The program ended with the balloon launching ceremony in honor of those souls lost to cancer, and those who are still battling the disease. The Community Sisterhood would like to thank everyone that came out to support the program, and a very special thanks to all of the guest speakers.
