Join our breast cancer awareness campaign
It's not too late to be part of the Salem News' Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. We are looking for North Shore residents who have battled or are battling breast cancer, who have been otherwise touched by this disease, and who would like to share their stories. Your stories will be used in our special news coverage this month, both in print and online at salemnews.com. If you are interested in sharing your story, or would like more information, contact Cheryl Lecesse at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-338-2664.
