<br />
PHOENIX – Fry’s Food Stores recently named Sistas of AZ a 2010 recipient of its Giving Hope A Hand campaign. The announcement includes a $5,000 award, which Sistas of AZ – a non-profit organization, whose focus encourages healthy living – will use to support its PINK 365 breast cancer awareness campaign. <br />
<br />
“We are not only excited about being named a 2010 recipient of the Giving Hope A Hand program, but about receiving funding that will enable us to continue our work,” said Sistas Founder Tina Brown. “Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women, the number one cause of cancer death in Hispanic women and is the second most common cause of cancer death in white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander and American Indian/Alaska Native women. It’s imperative for Sistas to do its part to educate women about their health and empower them to take control of it.”<br />
<br />  
 <strong><u>About Fry’s Food Stores</u></strong><br ?/>
Sistas of AZ is a volunteer group of African-American women, who are community leaders representing various organizations, businesses and diverse backgrounds. Its mission is to educate and empower all women to make responsible choices about their health and to help reduce health disparities as it relates to reproductive and sexual health, cancer, heart disease, domestic violence and other issues.<br />
<br />
PINK 365 is a breast cancer awareness campaign for women of color, supported and funded by Susan G. Komen for the Cure Phoenix Affiliate. In 2009, PINK 365 hosted 18 screening events throughout the community that resulted in more than 700 free mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women.<br />
