About the Asian Breast Health Outreach Project:
The Asian Breast Health Outreach Project (ABHOP), http://www.asianbreasthealth.org,
focus is on minimizing the barriers that keep Asian women from fully
participating in the early detection of breast cancer. By addressing
language, fear, culture, lack of information, economic and transportation
barriers that may have been factors in this priority group, we hope
to achieve this goal. By providing educational seminars and distributing
literature in their native language, breast health awareness for Asian
women will be increased. ABHOP will also provide screening mammography
services and referrals at no cost to low-income, medically underserved
Asian women in Dallas County.

APEX in Action is
the name for our Community Service part of the organization. We are
dedicated and driven to volunteer for various community service projects.
We're taking action by giving back to the area community.
APEX in Actionis pleased
to join the Asian Breast Health Outreach Project (ABHOP) in the 2005
Dallas Race for the Cure. Join the ABHOP team in support of the Komen
Foundation research for finding a cure for breast cancer. Our goal
is to raise at least $1,000 and have 50+ team walkers. We'll take
a team picture for this event and you'll get an ABHOP team t-shirt.
What a testimony it would be to see the Asian community get together
to support this worthy cause! After the 5K race/walk, we'll go to
the ABHOP booth and some team participants will receive prizes. Contact
Angela for questions or more details, email@example.com
Think that breast diseases don't really afflict Asian women or even
men? That's not true. Check out the following webpage from the Intercultural
Cancer Council (not an APEX or ABHOP sponsor) for some staggering
statistics & facts on Asians and cancer: http://iccnetwork.org/cancerfacts/cfs3.htm
