Horses and Hope

A new initiative of Horses and Hope will go beyond breast cancer
to serve both men and women with mobile screening and education
for many cancers. Kentucky ranks first in the nation for cancer deaths,
and has the second highest incidence rate for all cancer sites.
This new prevention and early detection program
will focus on Kentuckians most at risk.
