Completing yet another year,the 4th Annual Pink Week at Bishop Luers has again participated in collecting donations for Cancer Services. Luers’ Fall sport athletes, coaches, students and fans all took pride in raising breast cancer awareness at multiple home games this season by trading in their black and red and sporting pink body paint, socks and hats.
Thank you to Gwen McBride and Sandy Whittig, from the Red Hot Hattitudes, for coming in to deliver the proceeds from their Fashion Fling Boutique Event.
The Red Hot Hattitudes hosted a lunch buffet and ladies fashion resale fling with donated, unwanted, slightly used, yet nearly new fashion items along with a silent auction to raise breast cancer awareness. All of the money earned from their fundraiser was donated to us here at Cancer Services.
We would like to congratulate our friends at Francine’s Friends for a successful capital campaign! With the help of local individuals, businesses and organizations, the organization was able to purchase a new mobile mammography coach that was debuted at their annual Lunch with Friends event on October 14, 2011.
Francine’s Friends strives to make early detection of breast cancer available to every woman in Fort Wayne and the surrounding counties. They provide mobile mammography screenings and follow-up services to every woman who might otherwise not have access. The ultimate goal of this organization is to reduce breast cancer deaths through early detection.
