Self Help to host talk

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to recognize this month, Self Help, Inc. is sowing some seeds of information about this disease with the goal of reaping hope.

Dr. Erin Bouquin, a breast cancer survivor and a Los Alamos National Laboratory employee, will give a talk titled, “Perspectives on Breast Cancer” at 7 p.m. Thursday at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church.

Self Help is hosting the talk, which is free.

Ellen Morris Bond, executive director of Self Help ,Inc., explained Bouquin has been a breast cancer survivor for six years. When she hit the three-year mark, Bouquin threw a party and asked for donations to give to Self Help, Inc.

Through a three-year grant from United Way of Northern New Mexico, which awarded the nonprofit organization $5,000 each year, Self Help has supported cancer patients.

The funding allows Self Help to help cancer patients deal with any financial issues they face will on treatment.

“We’re trying to alleviate those pressures,” Morris Bond said.

Through this talk, Bouquin and Self Help will attempt to offer some emotional support as well.
