WCA Marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October 11, 2012
The Post-Journal

For a second year in a row, WCA Hospital is spearheading a local effort to raise awareness of breast cancer in conjunction with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. The WCA family and community members participated in a "Pink Ribbon Tree Hanging Ceremony" by tying their own personalized pink ribbon - signed by the person to whom they were paying tribute - in honor or memory of someone diagnosed with breast cancer around the tree on the front lawn of WCA Hospital at 207 Foote Ave. Adorned with pink ribbons and pink lights, the tree will serve as a monthlong reminder of the friends, neighbors and loved ones whose lives have been touched by breast cancer disease. "It is very reassuring to see these pink ribbons every year," said Linda Johnson, a breast cancer survivor employed at WCA. "It is a simple yet important reminder to get your annual mammogram." For free bookmarks, shower cards or educational pamphlets on What You Should Know About Breast Cancer, contact Toni DeAngelo, R.N., WCA Hospital Community Health and Wellness director at 664-8677. To schedule a mammogram, call the Center For Imaging at WCA at 664-8448.
