Howard employee hosts cancer awareness program

ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) - A Pine Belt cancer survivor hosted a special event Friday morning at her Ellisville employer for fellow workers who supported her.

Jeri Ratcliff spoke at a breast cancer awareness program at Howard Technology Solutions.

Ratcliff was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016, but is now cancer free.

She said support from family and other employees helped her beat cancer.

"It's a long journey and it's a tough journey but you have to have strength, courage and family and friends to make it through and if anyone needs my support, hey I'm going to be right there to support them," said Ratcliff.

Ratcliff and other employees also released balloons to honor those who died of cancer.
