GARY | A book release Saturday will double as a women's health education event called Girl Fight. The book, titled "THE FIGHT: Chronicles of a Champion," was written by Nikia Hammonds-Blakely.
The book is a reflection on the author's life, which includes her fight with breast cancer at a young age and her life-defining decision to have an abortion.
The event will last from noon-3 p.m. Saturday at New Hope Church, 2307 Rhode Island.
It is sponsored by Sieon Roberts Ministries. A Q&A session will include physical trainers, a mammography specialist and representatives from local health organizations and hospitals.
