- "Solo Para Mujeres" exposes for Latina breast cancer Awareness
CMN, Viva Entertainment and Planet MAC announced that the highly popular male review show “Solo Para Mujeres” (“For Women Only”) will stop at Chicago’s Rosemont Theatre as part of the Mexican theatrical production’s 2009 U.S. Tour on Friday, Nov. 6 at 8:00 p.m. CST.
For the very first time in entertainment history, U.S. Hispanic women will be the focus of a tour. Planet MAC approached the “Solo Para Mujeres” (SPM) group, which largely targets women, to step up and help change women's lives. Along with the American Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF), the organizations are reaching out to help protect Hispanic women from becoming part of the growing number of victims of undetected breast cancer. Current statistics show that Hispanic women are less likely to get breast cancer, but more likely to die of it due to lack of detection and intervention. Every 13 minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer in the United States. Alarming numbers show that the leading cause of cancer deaths in Hispanic women ages 18 - 40 is due to breast cancer.
The ABCF is one of the few foundations whose funds go directly to the patients and to detection and prevention programs. ABCF provides free mammogram vouchers and financial assistance to those uninsured or under insured.
