The Eagle-Tribune is organizing a Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign for the month of October, and we want you to be a part of it.
We are looking for Greater Haverhill residents who have battled or are battling breast cancer, who have been otherwise touched by this disease, and who would like to share their stories.
Your stories will be used in our special news coverage next month, both in print and online at eagletribune.com, to help educate the community about all aspects of a breast cancer diagnosis, including detection, treatment, survival and support.
If you are interested in sharing your story or would like more information, contact Cheryl Lecesse at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-338-2664.
