Breast health and women's sharing
Providence Medical Center, Kansas City, Kan., and St. John Hospital, Leavenworth, along with the American Cancer Society and Cancer Action are teaming up to plan a fun, woman-focused event from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 4.
Think Pink! again will be hosted at the Legends 14 Theatres at Village West in western Wyandotte County. The event will feature a continental breakfast, fashion show, a purse auction, an array of exhibitors, gourmet cooking demonstrations, a style consultant and an informative presentation by Scott Ellison, M.D., a board-certified surgeon, who practices at Providence. KCTV-5 meteorologist Katie Horner will emcee the event. "We encourage women to bring their girlfriends, mothers, sisters and daughters for a morning filled with fun, inspiration and most importantly, lifesaving facts about breast health," said co-chair Catherine Rice, senior associate of communications for Providence and St. John. "Proceeds from the event will be earmarked for the development of a new state-of-the-art Breast Center at Providence slated to open in mid-October. Think Pink! is open to all women, but advanced registration (by Sept. 19) is requested. The cost is $20.
