“Women need to understand that not having cancer in your family gives a false sense of security,” Hurst said. “Women need to conduct self-exams and know their bodies.”
Hurst says the pandemic had a negative impact on financial contributions in 2020, but the foundation will continue to work on educating the public and reminding people about the importance of early detection during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
