PA Breast Cancer Coalition holds press conference

EPHRATA, Pa., April 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Did you know FREE treatment is available to women diagnosed with breast cancer in Pennsylvania who are uninsured or underinsured?

That's why the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition (PBCC), in partnership with Senator Vince Hughes, is publicizing the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's Breast and Cervical Cancer Prevention and Treatment Program (BCCPT).

A press conference will be held on Tuesday, May 5 at 9am by the PA Breast Cancer Coalition and Senator Vincent Hughes to raise awareness about the FREE treatment that is available to women diagnosed with breast cancer who are uninsured or underinsured in Pennsylvania. This event will be held at the Main Capitol Rotunda in Harrisburg. Scheduled to speak at the event are: Pat Halpin-Murphy, President and Founder, PBCC; Senator Vincent Hughes, Minority Chair, Senate Public Health & Welfare Committee; Everette James, Secretary of Health, PA Department of Health; Joanne Corte Grossi, Director, Office of Women's Services, PA Department of Public Welfare; and Robin Leidhecker, Survivor.
