Laura Bush Travels to Middle East for Cancer Awareness

First Lady Laura Bush is on her way to the Middle East to bring awareness to breast cancer.

Her week-long tour includes stops in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Jordan.

Mrs. Bush will be meeting with doctors, educators and lawmakers, including women.

There is a high incidence of breast cancer in the Middle East but often, tumors aren't found until it's too late.

Even though that's the main purpose of the trip, aides acknowledge the president's wife will also be trying to boost America's image in places where it has seldom been worse.

All of the countries Mrs. Bush plans to visit this week are U.S. allies.
