Bazaar supports cancer screening

The Letcher County Extension Homemakers sponsored a holiday bazaar last month at the Letcher County Extension Office in Whitesburg. Part of the proceeds from the exciting and fun event went to support the Homemakers’ contribution to the free Ovarian Cancer Screening Program at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.

There are now over 200 local woman participating in the yearly screening. Any woman over the age of 50 is automatically eligible for the screening, unless she has had a complete hysterectomy. If you would like more information on the screening program, please call the Letcher County Extension Office at 633-2362.
