Groundbreaking in Ruleville: Fanny Lou Hamer HQ
Groundbreaking this week in the Delta: the Fannie Lou Hamer Cancer Foundation's new headquarters in Ruleville. We've had too many loved ones, civil rights and blues icons die because they couldn't get health care.
“‘The Center will serve as a long-lasting memorial to Mrs. Hamer, who died from untreated breast cancer,’ said FLHCF Founder and President Freddie White-Johnson.
“According to FLHCF, the Ruleville based non-profit has provided more than 5,000 under-served women with free mammograms and Pap smear tests since 2012. More than 1,200 men have received prostate cancer screenings, thanks to FLHCF.”
