Triple negative breast cancer impacts women of color

Breast Cancer
Every October, people lace up their sneakers and walk to support efforts to find a cure for breast cancer. In a sea of pink, there are heart wrenching stories of survival, homemade signs in memory of loved ones, and hope of a cure for this devastating disease that impacts more than 230,000 women and men every year. Even though many people are aware of breast cancer, there is one strain of this disease that few people know about. It’s triple negative breast cancer, which has higher rates among women of color.

Kroger and BRIDGES USA partner to support youth leadership

The Kroger Delta Division and Bridges USA have embarked on a three-year partnership that includes a $50,000 donation to help promote youth leadership.
The partnership was announced last week at the Kroger location at the corner of Poplar and Highland. It comes about a month after a group of young people attacked three people, including Kroger employees, on the parking lot of the Kroger store in the Poplar Plaza Shopping Center. About two weeks later, another group of young people attacked a car with a woman and her young daughter inside.
