PINK IS YOUR COLOR
Missouri Delta Medical Center is gearing up for their Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon scheduled for Thursday, October 18th at the First Baptist Church in Sikeston. “Doors open at 11:30am and the program will begin at 12:00. Jeannie Williams with Purs-N-Ality is the feature speaker this year. We will have amazing door prizes, a catered box lunch, raffle items, and a special surprise for cancer survivors,” explains Sharon Urhahn, Director of Marketing for Missouri Delta Medical Center.
According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 4,440 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 900 deaths from breast cancer are expected to occur among women in Missouri in 2012. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is designated to remind women about the importance of breast health.
Thanks to the generosity of our community, Missouri Delta Medical Center has the latest screening and diagnostic technology available by offering 3D breast tomosynthesis for breast cancer screening. This revolutionary technology gives radiologists the ability to identify and characterize individual breast structures without the confusion of overlapping tissue. By offering women the latest technology in mammography, Missouri Delta hopes to increase the number of area women who will be routinely screened.
Join us as we celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month and keep breast health on the minds of Southeast Missouri residents. Tickets are $10 each and sponsor tables are available. For more information, please contact Sharon Urhahn at 472-7329.
