April is now Minority Cancer Awareness Month in Texas!
According to the American Cancer Society, minority populations suffer the highest cancer death rate and the shortest survival time throughout the country.

Thanks to House Bill 114, authored by Representative Ruth Jones McClendon, this month will regularly be observed as Minority Cancer Awareness Month. The purpose of the bill is to increase recognition for minority cancer education, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Rep. McClendon hopes the bill will elevate cancer awareness among the general public and minority population.
