Letter to the Editor

To the community,

Last Thursday in her weekly address, President Helen Drinan shared the news of her recent breast cancer diagnosis. On behalf of myself and the Simmons Voice, we wish her a speedy and full recovery.

On Oct. 5, Simmons will once again be participating in the Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. Registration is $7 for students and $12 for faculty and staff, which can be done online or in the Office of Student Leadership and Activities.

One in eight women have breast cancer. People of all genders and ages can develop breast cancer. It is important to do regular breast exams and talk to a trusted health care provider if you have any questions or concerns.

Editor in Chief, The Simmons Voice
