Today is the 25th of the month...the day we remind you do your breast self-exam and ask you to remind a friend to do theirs as well.

Breast self-exam and regular mammograms helped save the life of Rich Beal's wife.

The Komen Memorial Affiliate was a resource to the Beal family during Jane's treatment and recovery.

Rich Beal is saying thank you by chairing the First Annual Komen Bloomington-Normal Race for the Cure Saturday, September 10th on the State Farm South Campus.
