The fight against Breast Cancer is ongoing—and will be coming to D.C.

ABC7’s Cynne Simpson will join several of her colleagues for the “News Babes Bash for Breast Cancer” at the Howard Theatre.

Doctor Rachel Brem, the Director of Breast Imaging and Intervention at The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates, chatted with ABC7.

The bash this year benefits the George Washington University Mammovan—the mobile healthcare unit that brings free mammography screenings to underserved women throughout the Washington area.

Dr. Brem said women by the age of 40 should be receiving mammograms every year. She said that the aim of the Mammovan is to “break down all barriers” that may prevent women from going out and getting the screening.

The event will take place on Tuesday June 19 from 7 to 9pm. For more details on the event, click here.
