Other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women according to the American Cancer Society. Getting mammograms regularly can lower the risk of dying from breast cancer. Thanks to earlier detection –through screening and increased awareness— and better treatments, a woman’s risk of dying of breast cancer dropped 38 percent between the late 1980s and 2014, translating into 297,300 fewer breast cancer deaths during that time.1
This year and after two months of being established, TSHICC showed strong support to a local charity in Prince Georges County by donating $3,000. TSHICC wants to let those who are fighting cancer know that they should not give up.
Pastor Kevin says, My mother and sister are both victims of this deadly disease. I miss them dearly, but, I understand that they are no longer suffering. Although TSHICC is less than one year old, we still want to show the community that we care. TSHICC will continue to be a part of giving to our community. We want to help our community and the world.
