Mother’s Month-Breast Cancer Action Now


The Bay Area Media Mission (BAMM) – a partnership of KDYA 1190AM/KDIA 1640AM Post News Group, and Richmond Main Street Initiative – is sponsoring Mother’s Month Breast Cancer Action Now, which will take place in May.
The program will recommend locations for free mammograms and diagnostic breast care services to underserved women in the area.
The program seeks to not only celebrate mothers on the second Sunday of May but will promote a better and healthier world for all women. Using the theme, “Action,” the program emphasizes the urgency of addressing this deadly illness  with education, screenings, health check-ups and follow-up exams for as many women as possible.
The mission is to motivate everyone, churches, health groups, and individuals to encourage the women in their lives to make a concerted effort to take better care of themselves, while they are no doubt taking care of others.
Highlighting this commitment to a healthy lifestyle, program sponsor The Richmond Main Street Initiative invites all to enjoy choices of fresh fruit and vegetables at the Healthy Village Farm Stand in downtown Richmond on Friday, May 3 from noon to 2 p.m., and every first Friday May through August.
Also, look for the Farmer’s Market every Wednesday   May 8 through Oct. 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in downtown Richmond.
