Mission Pink Walk/Run for Breast Cancer Awareness is a huge success!
The Foundation Board members participated during the Mission Pink event held on October 2016. We set up in the Survivor’s Tent and visited with many wonderful women that have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer at one time or another. Hands of all shapes and sizes placed their hands in paints in light pink, fuchsia and red colors, then placed their hand prints along with the date of their diagnosis on large boards. We had an opportunity to listen to many heroic stories and learn about these incredible women’s journey. Monthly breast self-exams and mammograms saved their lives. Several mothers and daughters placed their hands side by side on our Breast Cancer Survivor Hand Print Board.
Please remember that Early Detection is the Best Protection! Monthly breast self-exams are so important and if you see any changes in your breast please contact your healthcare provider immediately.
During the month of October, Mission Regional Medical Center through it’s “Mammograms Saves Lives” campaign, is offering mammograms at a discounted rate and includes the Radiologist’s interpretation for uninsured individuals. For an appointment please call our Breast Care Center at (956) 323-1700.
Thanks the generosity of our Mission Pink sponsors and participants, MRMC is offering 100 free mammograms. Apply today at MissionPink.org
Mark you calendars…The 11th Annual Legacy Gala will be held on Friday, February 10, 2018 at Corinthian’s in Mission.
Plans are underway for our 11th Annual Legacy Gala that benefits our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Our guests will enjoy a delicious steak dinner, dancing, Live and Silent Auctions and meet one of our NICU “Miracle Babies”. At our 10th Annual Legacy Gala 2017, our guests met our first NICU baby, Skye Medrano. Today, Skye is healthy and happy .
Just recently, over 150 “miracle babies” joined us for our 10th Annual NICU Graduate Reunion. “Baby” Skye Medrano and her parents were in attendance along with so many other parents that are so thankful for our physicians and nursing staff that took care of their little babies. Children from a few months to 9 years old enjoyed pizza, cupcakes and many fun activities where they met up with the nurses that cared for them and were by their side during their stay at Mission Regional Medical Center.
For information on sponsorship opportunities, please call Cynthia Guerra, Foundation Director, at 956-323-1102 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
