Green Community Service Award, which honors those who display an impressive commitment to the fight against breast cancer.This honor is given to an organization or individual who has made strides in promoting advancements in research, awareness, wellness, survivorship, resources, or overall quality achievements in the field. The Cancer Center’s BREAST/Amigas Unidas program provides community outreach and education on breast cancer to women in Cuyahoga County. The program provides free, culturally sensitive bilingual education, clinical breast exams, mammograms, and patient navigation services.
