Methodist Mansfield Celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness
More than 175 ladies attended Prettier in Pink, an event celebrating breast cancer awareness, at Methodist Mansfield Medical Center September 28. The educational event was held in their new, comprehensive Breast Imaging and Women’s Health Center.
Prettier in Pink, a special day in support of breast cancer survivors, helped raise awareness as well as raising funds needed for cancer healing kits. Radio personality Kellie Rasberry of the KIDD Kraddick morning show, and breast cancer survivor Rhea Zanti shared stories of hope and encouragement. Guests were also treated to a Brighton trunk show.
A panel of physicians featured Katrina Birdwell, MD; Allison DiPasquale, MD; Kory Jones, MD, Magda Rizer, DO, and Sarju Waghela, DO. The panel members shared their knowledge about some of the latest treatments. Information about new imaging technology such as 3D mammography was included.
Methodist Medical President Juan Fresquez welcomed the guests, many of them dressed in shades of pink, to Prettier in Pink. Rev. Ross Davis, director of pastoral services, led the prayer. Nora Frasier, CNO served as MC, and the event was coordinated by Angel Biasatti. Methodist Mansfield Medical Center Women’s Center is located at 2700 E. Broad Street in Mansfield.
