Komen Detroit Race for the Cure®, locally presented by Karmanos Cancer Institute. This year’s Race will be held Saturday, June 7 at Chene Park.

Dr. Helmer discussed screening options for underinsured and uninsured women, and provided information about the free screenings offered by the Wayne County Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP) administered by Karmanos, and other Komen Race-funded programs such as Karmanos’ Helping Hands. These are just two of the local programs that have received grants through the Komen Detroit Race for the Cure. Please join us on June 7 for this inspirational event. Register for the Race today!
