CoxHealth’s Pink Ribbon Rally and Luncheon to spread breast cancer awareness

CoxHealth has been uniting and inspiring breast cancer survivors, as well as their friends and family, at its annual Pink Ribbon Rally and Luncheon for nearly 25 years. Scheduled for Oct. 17, this year’s rally is sure to be another wonderful time of support for lives affected by the disease – and encouragement for early detection.

“This event is a great opportunity to come together with other people affected by breast cancer,” says Autumn Bragg, CoxHealth’s community oncology educator. “People have a strong connection to breast cancer. If they haven’t experienced it personally, it’s likely that they know someone who has.”
Because of that connection, the event is open to the general public. Activities will include a photo booth, group painting, music therapy, paraffin dip hand treatments, a silent auction and more. 

Additionally, a survivors’ panel discussion will focus on how breast cancer affects relationships and intimacy. Lunch will be provided by Chick-fil-A.

The event is free to attend, and will be held from 10:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Hulston Cancer Center. Doors open at 10:15 a.m. Space is limited, and registration by October 14 is required. Call 417-269-INFO or click here for more information.
