Walking For A World With More Survivors

For as many times as we’ve gotten together early in the morning for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer  it’s always an emotional and motivating experience. We make new friends, celebrate survivors and honor the memories who are not with us. But we walk with a purpose for a world without breast cancer, a world with more survivors. You can help us do that this Saturday, October 14th. I’ll be at the Shops of Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel making new friends and enjoying a lot of hugs and as always shed a few tears. It’s a pleasure to introduce you to another survivor that joined us to tell her story and give us yet one more reason to get out of bed, get those walking shoes on and join us for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Susan Fernandez has a powerful story to tell.

Please visit itsinourhands.org for more information from the team at BayCare, and make your appointment for your annual mammogram today. My mom is a double-mastectomy survivor and I’ve just had my mammogram and it’s fine. I want to keep it that way, so please help save your own life and get your mammogram soon. Need to know more about that? Have fun and learn a little something from the BayCare team this Friday, October 13th at Mease Countryside Hospital for an “It’s In Our Hands Painting Party” with Pinot’s Palette to will help you create your own work of art called “Lovely Ladies.” Register right now for just $15. Seating is limited so please don’t wait too long.
