Breast Cancer Awareness Event

Posted by Ava Culver

October 27, 2023

Amy Wheatley, from the Health Office, led a Breast Cancer Awareness seminar for those at Nazareth to come and learn more about breast cancer. There were refreshments, games, a photo booth, and a survivor’s parade.

At the event’s start, you had time to go to the information booth and learn more about Breast Cancer. Those in attendance signed a banner to show that those who fight breast cancer are not alone. Soon after, everyone found their seats and were led in prayer. Amy Wheatley then shared some information about breast cancer.

“One in every eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime,” Amy said.

She then continued to talk about how, most likely, we all know someone who has or will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

There was then a parade of 13 strong women here at Nazareth who were survivors of breast cancer. To close off this event, Stephanie Lamar and Amy Wheatley led us in a prayer to signify that those who fight the fight against breast cancer are not alone.

We want to tell anyone who has or is fighting the fight against breast cancer that you are not alone.

    Very important to emphasize the importance of getting regular checkups. In the shower, first day of each month, do a self breast exam.
