New Community Early Learning Centers Raise Awareness About Breast Cancer

Teachers and students at New Community’s two early learning centers held events for students and staff members in October to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Harmony House Early Learning Center (HHELC), 278 South Orange Ave., Newark, held a Breast Cancer Awareness March to bring attention to the disease. Community Hills Early Learning Center (CHELC), 85 Irvine Turner Boulevard, Newark, hosted a Breast Cancer Walk for students and staff. Children and adults at both centers wore pink for the events. One in eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime and there are over 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States. Screenings and self-exams are key for early diagnosis. Photos courtesy of HHELC and CHELC.
