Our goals are to increase the rate of mammography screening, clinical breast exams and breast self-awareness among African American women residing in North St. Louis City and County; to decrease the incidence of late stage breast cancer in the target population; and to increase the availability of breast cancer information, resources, navigation assistance and support to under-served women in the St. Louis community.

Funds from St. Louis Men’s Group Against Cancer will be used to support our patient resource bag program.  Lung Cancer Connection provides resource bags for newly diagnosed lung cancer patients and their caregivers. These bags provide support and educational resources focused on survivorship and caregiving.  They are made available free of charge at many of the St. Louis area’s hospitals.  Lung Cancer Connection is also expanding efforts into the more rural areas surrounding St. Louis.  This grant will offset the cost of over 700 bags and help our organization as we expand our resources to include new locations.
