Celebrate Life and the Healing Power of Laughter – 7th ANNUAL THINK PINK TEA
In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, recognized annually in October, Glenwood’s Breast Health Center will host its 7th Annual Think Pink Tea on Friday, October 23rd at the West Monroe Convention Center. It is a wonderful time to gather with friends as we celebrate life and the healing power of laughter. Attendees will enjoy a delicious light lunch and a variety of teas along with exclusive shopping with over 30 vendors. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many overlook the importance of mammograms to detect the disease in its early stages so it can be treated with greater success. The now widely popular event helps to spread the important message of early detection while celebrating the lives of breast cancer survivors in an empowering way.
This year’s keynote speaker will be Lillie Shockney, Administrative Director of the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. In fact, she has many official titles, but her most significant job does not appear on a business card. Shockney, has become a crusader for better care for breast cancer patients around the world. A two-time breast cancer survivor, she has published 14 books and more than 250 peer-reviewed articles in medical journals. She has won more than two dozen awards for her work from national organizations like Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and through her travels, she has met thousands of newly diagnosed patients and their families, answering questions big and small and sharing her experience. Lillie is also the breast cancer consultant for national ABC News and Good Morning America, and is also consulted regularly by the NBC Today Show and CNN.
