HOLTVILLE — Between Women is sponsoring a luncheon and fashion show from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Barbara Worth Golf Resort near here.
The focus of the luncheon is cancer survivors.
This is the fifth annual luncheon presented by Between Women, the local Y-me National Breast Cancer Organization.
Although a relatively small organization, Between Women accomplishes a great deal. In addition to the yearly luncheon, the group puts on cancer workshops in local churches. A "Comadre" program geared toward Latino woman in the intimacy of their homes with friends and family has been effective. The group also has started going into the fields to educate women. A program aimed at teens is offered at local high schools.
The guest speaker will be Denise Rogers of El Centro. Her talk will be geared to how the community can help cancer patients through the crisis of their journey.
According to Linda Cady, Between Women coordinator, many men and women have asked her what they can do for cancer patients.
