Breast cancer screenings grant

A grant of 25-thousand dollars will mean free breast cancer screenings for women in Leflore, Sunflower and Humphreys counties. The Greenwood Commonwealth reports that the money was donated by the New York-based Avon Foundation for Women to the Fannie Lou Hamer Cancer Foundation. It will pay for 200 mammograms and 200 clinical breast exams over the next year.
