Join us for an event filled with heartwarming moments that entertain, inspire and provide educational awareness.

Posted in:

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, marked by pink ribbons and a community of caregivers and survivors taking a stand in the fight against cancer. The early detection and treatment message has come a long way since the mid- 1990ies when Jan Moore of Lufkin was diagnosed with the devastating disease. Information about breast cancer was very limited. 

After her death in 1993, her friends wanted to do something special to honor Jan, to help support Temple Cancer Center, and to help raise money for cancer patients, especially breast cancer patients. 

Barbara Polk, Mary Martha Henderson, Tony Brown, and Nancy Moore approached St. Luke's Health-Memorial leaders with the idea of hosting a breast cancer awareness luncheon. 

It was an act of endless love. Power of Pink! has educated thousands of women about the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, early detection, and treatment options. As we gather back together this year, it is our focus to Encourage the Fighters, Support the Survivors, and Remember the Ones that were Taken.
