Breast cancer awareness is the focus of first lady Laura Bush's coming trip to the Middle East, where she will meet with kings and promote women's health in an area of the world where the US image has been marred by the Iraq war. Mrs. Bush will travel Oct. 20-26 to the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Jordan to meet with officials, medical and educational leaders and members of women's groups. She recently made a trip to Africa that focused on U.S. programs battling AIDS and malaria. "While in the region she will also visit several cancer treatment and screening centers and launch new cancer awareness activities," said Mrs. Bush's press secretary Sally McDonough.
