Hosted by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings

This week's episode of "Beyond the Headlines" discusses the impact of breast cancer on the lives of women all over the Bay Area. We'll begin with a special focus on recognizing environmental influences that put women at risk. Learn how breast cancer challenges the lives of African American women differently than other ethnicities. And discover how the fact that the decreasing age of puberty in young girls relates directly to breast cancer concerns. And finally, learn how you can get involved and make a difference, supporting organizations helping those who are battling breast cancer every day.
