Ahwatukee Foothills resident and photographer Everardo Keeme was chosen to do a photo shoot for the Arizona Young Breast Cancer Survivor Support Initiative recently through a cooperative agreement between John C. Lincoln Health Network and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This initiative will change how Arizona supports young women diagnosed with breast cancer and their families. This initiative will also increase awareness among the medical community and the general public. Keeme’s photos will be featured on a website that has been created as a result of this funding. The Arizona Breast Cancer Resource guide (azbreastcancer.org) has been developed to help women diagnosed with breast cancer, their families, caregivers, and medical professionals more easily access those resources available to help navigate the journey through breast cancer. This website will help ease the burden of searching for competent assistance and services that are needed most during this frightening and uncertain time.
