Breast cancer rates are on the rise among younger women. Hear how Team Shan is reaching out to young women, healthcare providers, and the public about breast cancer risks and breast health messages.
Shanna (Shan) Larsen was only 24 years old when she lost her life to breast cancer. Her friends and family have bonded together to create Team Shan — their hope is to spread the message that: “Breast cancer is not just a disease of older women.”
Lorna Larsen, Shanna’s mother, will present a public message about breast cancer and risks to young women. Lorna established Team Shan as a community based organization in 2006 to make a positive difference for young women following in Shan’s footsteps. Team Shan registered as a national charity in 2010.
The presentation takes place Thursday, March 28 from 12 noon to 1 p.m. in Room 218, Arts Building, 1147 Research Rd. at UBC’s Okanagan campus in Kelowna.
