On February 26, 2023, Eta Nu Nu Chapter held a Survivorship Breast Cancer Awareness event to support women of color who have undergone single or double mastectomies, lumpectomies, or reconstruction surgeries. As part of our celebration of Black History Month and our commitment to women's health, we partnered with generous sponsors to provide free mastectomy bras, prostheses, and wigs to survivors. The event served as an opportunity to raise awareness about breast cancer while addressing the unique challenges that women of color face during and after treatment. By offering these essential items, we aimed to alleviate some of the financial and emotional burdens that often accompany the recovery process.

The event was designed to create a warm and welcoming environment for the guests, providing a range of services and activities to make them feel valued and cared for. Attendees were pampered with massages, nail polishing, and other relaxing treatments, along with flowers, gift cards, and refreshments. We also provided health and wellness information, emphasizing the importance of early detection and preventive care. Through this initiative, Eta Nu Nu demonstrated our commitment to supporting breast cancer survivors and promoting women's health, reinforcing that they are not alone in their journey toward recovery and wellness. It was a meaningful event that brought comfort and joy to those who attended.
