The Witness Project promotes awareness of mammography among African-American women and medically underserved women. African-American women who are breast or cervical cancer survivors serve as role models and “witness” at churches and civic groups about their triumphs over cancer. Through this program, more women – particularly in the rural parts of Arkansas – are becoming better informed about early detection in the fight against breast and cervical cancer.

For more information about the program, or to learn how you can become a volunteer, write to the Arkansas Cancer Research Center, 4301 West Markham, # 629-A, Little Rock, Arkansas 72205; or call (800) 275-1183.
