Saline Health System to host Bosom Buddies Bash
This ladies-night-out style event spotlights the need for breast cancer early detection
BENTON, Ark. (Sept. 29, 2022) – In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Saline Memorial Hospital is hosting Bosom Buddies Bash in the atrium in the hospital’s education building from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2022.
Ladies are invited to bring a friend to enjoy refreshments, get pampered by local aesthetics professionals, chat with Dr. Lin Chen from Genesis Cancer and Blood Institute and get a picture in the American Cancer Society’s big pink chair. The hospital’s imaging department will be doing mammograms until 7 p.m. that evening to make it convenient for those who need later hours. Attendees will also have opportunities to win prizes and learn about ways to support breast cancer awareness.
The goal of the event is to draw attention to the importance of early detection in the fight against breast cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, the death rate from breast cancer dropped by 42% from 1989 to 2019 as result of earlier detection through increased awareness, mammography screening and advances in treatments.
“Breast cancer affects us all, and we can all help by encouraging our friends and family to be proactive in monitoring their breast health,” Saline Health System CEO Michael Stewart said.
Anyone interested in attending the event or scheduling a mammogram during this window can sign up at SalineMemorial.org/BosomBuddiesBash.
