Community event time! Coming up in September, there is a great community event going on right here in Arlington, Texas, to promote women’s cancer awareness and bring hope to the community. The first annual Pink Teal Luncheon is an opportunity for guests to hear about survivors and their journey with cancer. The goal is to make this an annual event raising awareness of cancers that most often affect women – Breast and Gynecologic Cancers. 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime and 1 out of 100 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer by age 70. Though it is less common than breast cancer, ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.
 
 
You’re invited to come participate in the inspiring dialogue between two amazing survivors – Shannon Miller, Olympian & ovarian cancer survivor and local coach, Sam Morrow, breast cancer survivor.
