Recently, FWC staff and volunteers attended the Fiesta in Florissant to meet with people from the St. Louis area and all over and spread awareness of gynecologic cancer.
The Fiesta in Florissant was a wonderful celebration of numerous Latine cultures incorporating delicious food, beautiful crafts, games, and traditional dance. It was sweltering, but that didn’t stop roughly 5,000 people from coming out to enjoy the festival and join in on the fun. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth to grab some swag or start a conversation on gyn cancer and the mission of #MoveTheMessage.
Don’t forget to keep an eye out for more events near you! Coming up in August, see us at the Chicago Sky game and the Fulton Projects: Chelsea Block Party in New York City.
If you couldn’t make it, you can still #MoveTheMessage by posting an image of yourself in motion—walking, cycling, dancing, or whatever gets you moving – and tag 5 friends with the message:
#MoveTheMessage Know the 5 Gyn Cancers. Early detection matters. Take steps today to protect your tomorrows.
