Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation offering webinars to educate women
ROANOKE, Va. – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation (VBCF) wants to get the word out in southwest Virginia that resources are available. All month VBCF is hosting a virtual education series, answering questions from those with cancer.
