Sharsheret Teal and Pink Shabbat®

Aug 24, 2021

Create Awareness. Get Educated. Take Action.

A Colorado community-wide initiative to prevent and cure breast and ovarian cancer

JEWISHcolorado’s Women’s Philanthropy in partnership with Sharsheret Teal and Pink Shabbat® educates women and men about the increased risk of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer among Jewish families, the measures they can take to protect their health, the impact of breast and ovarian cancer on the Jewish community, and connects individuals to Sharsheret’s resources.

The weeklong community-wide initiative focused on raising awareness about breast and ovarian cancer among Jewish women will feature multiple events for women and their families. We hope you will join JEWISHcolorado at one of our partnership events, held in conjunction with Rose Medical Center and JScreen (details to come).
