Senator Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) is hosting a Breast Cancer Awareness Drive-Thru event on TUESDAY, October 26, 2021 to collect donations for local young women currently diagnosed with breast cancer; and to provide constituents with information and resources on prevention, screening and treatment options available to them.
Joining Senator Grove is the Young Survival Coalition (YSC) of Bakersfield, a group of women who have all been diagnosed with breast cancer under age 40. Senator Grove will be collecting donations of cozy blankets, reusable water bottles, soft eye masks, socks, slippers, button-up pajamas, head wraps, knit hats, queasy drops, lollipops, hand sanitizer, hydration packets and thera bands. These items will be donated to the YSC “healing closet” which offers special care kits for those who have been recently diagnosed and are currently undergoing treatment.
Adventist Health has donated FREE MAMMOGRAM vouchers for the first 50 participants, or while supplies last, and Kern County Public Health is providing further tools for self-assessment.
