Date:5/26/2009

EPHRATA, Pa., May 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition (PBCC) is pleased to work with the McKean County Exhibit Committee and the Kane Area Community Center to bring its traveling photo exhibit "67 Women, 67 Counties: Facing Breast Cancer in Pennsylvania," to McKean County from May 28 - June 8. The photo exhibit will be displayed in the Kane Area Community Center.

An opening reception is scheduled for Thursday, May 28 at 6:00 p.m. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. To RSVP for the opening reception, please call 1-800-377-8828 x304.

This work of art features women from each of Pennsylvania's 67 counties, along with a message about how breast cancer has touched their lives. The women reflect the diversity of Pennsylvania, and their stories reflect the impact of breast cancer on themselves, their families and their communities. The exhibit encourages women to learn about early detection and celebrates life, courage, hope and dignity of women and families who have battled breast cancer. "67 Women, 67 Counties: Facing Breast Cancer in Pennsylvania" is sponsored by the PBCC and funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Pat Halpin-Murphy, President and Founder of the PBCC, encourages everyone to visit the exhibit. "Breast cancer is not a rare event separate from the fabrics of our everyday lives. It impacts our mothers, daughters and friends. We must educate ourselves about this disease and fight to find a cure now...so our daughters won't have to."

Susan Coulter, committee chair said, "In October I organized Kane Pink Power Day through Adagio Health to promote Breast Cancer Awareness. This exhibit is a continuation of the cause. I am very excited to work with the women of our community to bring the traveling photo exhibit "67 Women, 67 Counties: Facing Breast Cancer in Pennsylvania" to McKean County."

The PBCC, founded in 1993, is a non-profit organization and the only statewide grassroots organization that speaks to and for breast cancer survivors. The PA Breast Cancer Coalition represents, supports and serves breast cancer survivors and their families in Pennsylvania through educational programming, legislative advocacy and breast cancer research grants.
