CoxHealth’s Pink Ribbon Rally and Luncheon scheduled for October 8

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 24 years. Scheduled for October 8, 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, community oncology educator at CoxHealth. “People have a strong connection to breast cancer. If they haven’t experienced it personally, it’s likely they know someone who has.”

Because of that connection, the event is open to the general public. Activities include a photo booth, group painting, pampering, door prizes and more. Additionally, the lunch discussion will focus on healing emotionally and physically from breast cancer. Lunch will be provided by Chick-fil-A.

The event is free to attend, and will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Hulston Cancer Center (3850 S. National Ave., Springfield). Doors open at 10:15 a.m. Space is limited, and registration by Oct. 5 is required. Call 417-269-INFO for more information.
