LARNED — Gather your girlfriends, sisters, mother, and daughters and come out for a free night of fun and information that could one day save your life or the life of someone you love. Pawnee Valley Community Hospital Foundation will host “Girls Night Out,” a Breast Cancer Awareness Program, at 7 p.m. Monday in the large meeting room at Pawnee Valley Community Hospital.
“Girls Night Out” will feature a special guest speaker, educational information on self breast exams and getting your mammogram, plus giveaways, refreshments and door prizes. This event is designed to be educational and fun for the participants while equipping them with the tools they need to take a proactive approach to their health.
“Girls Night Out” is funded through the generous donations of the Larned Correctional Mental Health Facility and CCS staff.
Oct. 28 is Breast Cancer Awareness Day, an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.
Breast cancer has affected many here in Pawnee County whether it is a family member, friend, co-worker or maybe ourselves, and we have all be touched in some way. The staff at Correct Care Solutions and LCMHF hope for a Cure and will continue to help work towards a cure, but until that time comes they hope that they can be a part of the solution through education and awareness.
