Cancer survivor, Pink Glove Dance video to highlight Agnesian HealthCare breast health event
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. About one in eight (12 percent) women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime.
The good news is that dramatic improvements in cancer research, treatment and early detection, millions of women are surviving breast cancer today.
Join Agnesian HealthCare on Tuesday, September 9 as part of its annual breast health event to hear a local cancer survivor’s story, as well as the opportunity to meet Filip Trocki, MD, a radiation oncologist with the Agnesian Cancer Center.
This free event is scheduled from 6 to 7 p.m. in Agnesian HealthCare’s Plaza Level Conference Center, 430 E. Division Street, Fond du Lac. It will also feature food, refreshments and giveaways.
Celebrate the kickoff of the 2014 Pink Glove Dance as we debut Agnesian HealthCare’s video entry, starring local cancer survivors and community members. As part of a nationwide video contest to raise breast cancer awareness, videos with the most public votes will win $50,000 in prizes to donate to a cancer charity of choice.
