Cancer screening offered for Indigenous women on Friday –

The Ontario Native Women’s Association is collaborating with Cancer Care Ontario as it deploys its Screen for Life coach.

THUNDER BAY — The Ontario Native Women’s Association is encouraging Indigenous women to take advantage of an opportunity to be screened for breast cancer and other cancers.

In an appeal to the community, the organization asks women to join Indigenous communities across Ontario “as they honour their bodies through screening and prevention …Help amplify Indigenous women’s voices and encourage your family, friends and co-workers to get screened.”

ONWA and Cancer Care Ontario have partnered to offer a mobile screening clinic on Friday for women between 50 and 74 years old, and for others who have a strong family history of cancer.

The service will include Indigenous support staff working in collaboration with the cancer screening team.
