Labor Day weekend in NYC is when people of West Indian heritage celebrate our Caribbean culture. This year I stayed home most of the weekend but attended Kiddie’s Carnival and two after work events. Soca artist Allison Hinds joined Globe-athon in this year’s parade for a campaign encouraging women to “take care down there”.
Globe-athon is an international organization focused on the prevention and early detection of all gynecological cancers including uterine (endometrial), cervical, ovarian, vaginal and vulvar. This movement is supported by international gynecologists, gynecological oncologists, and doctors, as well as gynecological cancer survivors. During its second annual effort, Globe-athon will occur during four weeks in September with hundreds of events and educational seminars throughout the world. Every year, the organization has grown to include more countries and awareness events including walks, runs, music and dance performances, parades, and lectures, with below-the-belt cancer education sessions.
