Breast Cancer (#306)
Renee speaks with Dr. Vinnette Little, a specialist in internal medicine at Central Baptist Hospital, and breast cancer survivors Porter “P.G.” Peeples and Benita Peoples.
Peeples, a prominent civic and community leader in Fayette County, found out that he had breast cancer in 2004. Around the same time of his diagnosis, his sister was diagnosed with stomach cancer. Peeples survived, but his sister died two years later. He is now an ambassador for early detection and treatment, especially in men.
Viewers also meet Benita Peoples, a breast cancer survivor who is going back to college to pursue a degree in counseling to help others deal with cancer.
