A group of UM Shore Regional Health team members, volunteers and breast cancer survivors gathered earlier in October to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month with the annual Pink Ribbon Hanging and Tree Lighting Ceremony at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton. Due to inclement weather, this year’s event was held in the main lobby of the medical center; however, the rain did not dampen the spirits of those attending this moving annual event. Pink ribbons have since been placed on the tree in front of UM SMC at Easton in honor of the 169 patients diagnosed with breast cancer this past year at the Comprehensive Breast Center at UM Shore Regional Health.

The new Spruce in front of UM SMC at Easton is adorned with 169 pink ribbons, in honor of the 169 patients diagnosed with breast cancer this past year at the Comprehensive Breast Center.

Breast Cancer Awareness Activities and Events Planned at UM Shore Regional Health

 

Access-to-Care

untitledUniversity of Maryland Shore Regional Health will observe Breast Cancer Awareness month with various activities throughout the month of October, all aimed at increasing awareness of breast cancer and how it can be best detected, prevented and treated.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer, taking the lives of approximately 40,000 women annually. In the United States, one in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.

“Breast cancer awareness month is a great time to educate people about the importance of prevention and early detection of this life-altering disease,” says Roberta Lilly, MD, MPH, FACS, medical director of the Comprehensive Breast Center at UM Shore Regional Health. “Regular mammography screening, self-breast examination and knowledge of your familial history of cancer all help lower breast cancer mortality by finding breast cancer early—when the chance of successful treatment is best and the survival rate is highest.”

Some of the planned activities include the following:

  • Pink Ribbon Hanging & Tree Lighting: Thursday, October 1, 4:30pm, UM Shore Medical Center at Easton

To kick off the activities surrounding Breast Cancer Awareness Month, staff and volunteers from the Comprehensive Breast Center will hang pink ribbons in honor of those patients who were treated by the Center in the past year. These ribbons will be hung on the large tree in the front circle at UM Shore Medical Center at Easton. A public ribbon ceremony will be held on Thursday, October 1 at 4:30pm. Once decorated with the ribbons, the tree will serve as a month-long reminder of the friends, neighbors and loved ones whose lives have been touched by breast cancer. This tree will be lit with pink lights throughout the month.

  • Cancer Survivor Art Gallery Opening & Reception, Thursday, October 1, 4-6pm, Comprehensive Breast Center at UM Shore Regional Health

The Gallery Wall at University of Maryland Shore Regional Health’s Comprehensive Breast Center will unveil its fall exhibit with an opening reception. The exhibit, which will be on display through the end of the year, will feature artwork created by breast cancer survivors. The public is invited to this free event.

The Gallery Wall was created in 2009 by Breast Center staff and a committee of local artists and breast cancer survivors.  The Center hosts four shows throughout the year, one each quarter, in an effort to bring awareness to the location and services that are provided to the community by the Center.

  • Breast Cancer Awareness Fair, Tuesday, October 13, 11am-1pm, UM Shore Medical Center at Easton, Grapevine Cafe

In addition to the diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant breast disease, the Center will continue to offer a multitude of support services including telemedicine genetic counseling services and the Wellness for Women program, a breast screening program that promotes early detection of breast cancer.

Breast Center Kicks Off Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Pink Ribbon Event

University of Maryland Shore Regional Health will promote October as Breast Cancer Awareness month with various activities throughout the month, all aimed at increasing awareness of the disease and the services available for prevention and treatment. To kick off the activities surrounding Breast Cancer Awareness Month, staff and volunteers from UM Shore Regional Breast Center hung pink ribbons in honor of those patients who were treated by the Breast Center in the past year. This tree will be lit with pink lights throughout the month.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer, taking the lives of approximately 40,000 women annually.

“October is a great time to remind people about the importance of prevention and education when it comes to their breast health,” says Roberta Lilly, MD, Medical Director for Shore Regional Breast Center. “Regular mammography screening can help lower breast cancer mortality by finding breast cancer early, when the chance of successful treatment is best.”’
