Y-ME hopes to have a locally made breast cancer video approved for use in Washington County schools' 10th grade girls' health/life skills classes.
A video with an introduction by actress Jenny Garth, produced with funding from the national Y-ME organization and American Cancer Society, already is in use.
Y-ME received funding for the project from Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Washington, Albert E. and Naomi B. Sinnisen Foundation, Dr. and Mrs. Joel Rosenthal and Melissa Weiner. NBC25 produced the video.
