PORT HURON, MI – In observance of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, McLaren Port Huron’s Women’s Wellness Place will be holding its 10th Annual Breast Cancer Survivor Brunch Saturday, October 26, from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Fore Lakes Golf and Banquet Center, 5910 Flinchbaugh Rd., Kimball.
The brunch is for breast cancer survivors and their guests. The program’s keynote speaker is Ardie Hayes, registered nurse and breast cancer survivor. Prior to retiring from McLaren Port Huron, Ardie was both a Breast Health Nurse and an Outreach and Education Nurse Clinician. She will discuss Sharing the Sisterhood.
“There is a sisterhood of breast cancer survivors, an invisible bond between women who have had breast cancer,” Ardie says. “As a sisterhood we have a mission to educate women, including younger women, about doing breast exams and getting mammograms. We need to be aware of our bodies and work as partners to negotiate our care with our physicians. We’re here for a reason.”
The cost of the event is $15 and will include brunch, door prizes and a vendor area to visit. Registration deadline is October 12. For additional information, call McLaren Port Huron HealthAccess at 1.800.228.1484 or visit www.porthuronhospital.org/breasthealth.
