2016 Pink Ribbon Ladies’ Night Out« Return
St. James Parish Hospital is excited to announce that Pink Ribbon Ladies’ Night Out will be held on Wednesday, October 26th from 6pm to 8pm at the St. Peter Chanel Gym.
After weather complications forced a cancellation in 2015, St. James Parish Hospital took the opportunity to obtain feedback from the community and a diverse group of local breast cancer survivors. Education and survivor celebration were universally stated as the most important goals of the event. This will be the hospital’s primary focus thus resulting in a more meaningful and time-conscious evening.
In addition to a mini cancer-focused health fair where ladies can visit booths, East Jefferson General Hospital, a member of the MD Anderson Cancer Network, will be educating the audience on Integrative Medicine, how the EJGH Cancer Care team includes holistic approaches with clinical medicine, to improve patient outcomes and comfort. This year’s event will conclude with a moving and exciting survivor ceremony in celebration of the reason the hospital works so hard to spread awareness and education.
Entrance will be by bracelet only. A meal and dessert will be served and bracelets will be used for door prize drawings. Bracelets are $5 and can be purchased at the Medical Plaza next to St. James Parish Hospital in Lutcher or at the St. James West Bank Clinic located in Vacherie.
The Breast Cancer Survivors’ Only Sale will be offered from Monday, October 10th – Tuesday, October 11th from 8am to 5pm at both locations. Survivors will be allowed to purchase up to three bracelets. The Community Sale will be from 8am to 5pm on Wednesday, October 12th – Thursday, October 13th or while supplies last. Community members can buy up to two bracelets. Check the Hospital’s Facebook Page for more information or to find out when bracelets are sold out.
