St. Mary Medical Center and 92.5 WXTU Host Breast Cancer Survivor’s Luncheon to Honor “Pink Warriors”
LANGHORNE, Pa., November 14, 2013 – On Wednesday, November 13, St. Mary Medical Center and 92.5 WXTU partnered for the first time to offer a special recognition luncheon honoring breast cancer Survivors, held at the Triumph Brewery in New Hope. The event was a culmination of a month-long period in October, during which friends, family and peers nominated breast cancer survivors for their strength and courage in fighting the disease. About 30 survivors and a guest were invited to the special luncheon, which included an empowering and inspirational program and a musical performance by Sheryl Crow, who is also a breast cancer survivor. The event also included brief remarks from Sister Marie Barbara McNamara, St. Mary Chaplain, Susan Sample, St. Mary Oncology Service Line Administrator; and Dr. Stacy Krisher, Medical Director of the St. Mary Breast Center.
St. Mary Medical Center and WXTU both strive to raise awareness of breast cancer and celebrate survivors. Central to the St. Mary identity and mission, St. Mary offers the full continuum of care to breast cancer patients, from detection, to diagnosis and treatment. St. Mary also has a full array of supportive services for every aspect of breast cancer care and provides free mammograms to uninsured women.
