Breast Cancer Prevention Event (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, October 16, 2019
This week I talked with Cheryl Osimo Executive Director of the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition about the 22nd Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention that takes place at The Inn at Brookline at 1200 Beacon Street in Brookline, Massachusetts on October 26th from 8P to 12P. This year MBCC is proud to be honoring Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey. Osimo stated, "Attorney General Healey has worked tirelessly for the citizens of Massachusetts across so many important issues. We admire all that she has accomplished & continues to work towards on behalf of her constituents & look forward to honoring her at this year’s event." AG Healey will be appearing in a special video presentation to be shown during the evening’s festivities. MBCC will also be recognizing longtime MBCC supporter Laura Diamond owner of Diamond Physical Therapy Associates & Moving Violations Motorcycle Club the oldest women’s motorcycle club in New England. MBCC is the only breast cancer non-profit working closely with a research & sister organization Silent Spring Institute to investigate preventable environmental causes of the disease. This work is funded through events like the upcoming Lesbians & Friends Dance: A Party for Prevention. Cheryl Osimo is a fierce LGBTQ ally & devoted breast cancer activist & advocate since 1991 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 41. She has been a catalyst in raising public awareness of the possible environmental links to breast cancer. The Lesbians & Friends LGBTQ Dance Party For Prevention will also feature DJ Shelly Cullen, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar & a silent auction. Liz Nania of Out to Dance will conduct a free one-hour dance workshop from 7P to 8P. Tickets are $45 general & $20 for students online or on the day of the event $50 general & $25 for students at the door. Halloween Costumes are optional. LISTEN

I am amazed at the spectrum of the work that Cheryl and MBCC are involved in…so few have given prevention their attention. It's usually treatment. The only real cure is prevention and we need to get behind this work. The dance is a great time too
