After Governor Rod R. Blagojevich made Illinois the first and only state in the nation to make sure all women who need access to potentially life-saving cancer screenings and treatment can get it, First Lady Patricia Blagojevich is reinforcing this message by urging Illinois women to get screened and Tell a Friend about the importance of getting screened. Joined by Dr. Funmi Olopade - one of the nation's top cancer researchers - and a group of Illinois women, Mrs. Blagojevich today launched the Tell a Friend campaign encouraging men and women alike to help spread the word for women to take charge of their health and get breast and cervical cancer screenings during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
