It’s time to put on your pink and get ready to see some great fashion, participate in great raffles, but most of all get ready to help the women of North Texas get the medical attention they deserve.
“Puttin on the Pink” is hosted by the Kupferle Health Board of the Texas Health Resources Foundation. The proceeds from this fashion luncheon helps fund their mobile unit. This mobile unit is the doctor’s office on wheels that provides much needed service to women who might otherwise not have access to healthcare.
This year’s event is co-chaired by Sharon Crockett and Heather Senter. These ladies have worked hard to make sure this years event continues the legacy that the volunteers started years ago to raise awareness of the mobile unit so that all women in the North Texas area have the opportunity to get the services they need.
Sharon became involved in the Puttin on the Pink when she learned that her best friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. She soon realized that almost everyone knew someone who has been affected by some form of cancer. Realizing that some people don’t know about the medical exam they should take, or they knew but didn’t have resources they needed to attain these services she knew she had to try and make a difference.
At the luncheon many men and women will learn about the services the mobile unit offers–these people will get the information out to many more people. They will be able to tell that the mobile unit does:
- Breast Cancer Screening Mammogram
- Clinical Breast Examination
- Cervical Cancer Screening
- Sink Cancer Screening
- Colon Cancer Screening
- There is also Prostate Cancer Screening for men
This years’ Puttin on the Pink fashion luncheon will be held at the Fort Worth Convention Center on April 5, starting with a reception at 10:30 with the fashion luncheon at 11:30.
Remember “thisisyourbestyear”. Put on your Pink for a great cause.
