Francine's Friends Awarded Dr. Bernard Stuart Health Award
“We are very humbled and honored to be presented with the health award from the NAACP this year,” said Sharon Simmons, co-founder and board president of Francine’s Friends. “In our twelve years of funding screenings, our mission has been to improve the health of women in our community through early detection and by making screening mammography accessible to those who may be unable to otherwise receive this potentially lifesaving screening,” she continued. “We thank the NAACP for their confidence in our ability and their support of our mission,” she concluded.
