Kennewick General Hospital was awarded a $30,000 grant for breast cancer prevention.
The grant comes from the Eastern Washington Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and will allow the hospital to provide education, resources and screenings for women.
Buddy Check 25 allows women of any age to request a kit that includes information about breast self-examination and why it's important, a women's health booklet and shower card to remind women that self-examination should be done monthly.
The booklet tells women what to do if they find a lump.
Never miss a local story.
