Check, check, check.....

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we have been busy with events for the community.

We hosted an event at the local mall, at a local college for women, for some of our VIP patients and then this weekend we have a Breast Cancer Walk.  Our slogan is "Get Fit, Fight Cancer" so we are trying to encourage exercise and a healthy lifestyle. 

It's been a good month of education for myself and for those in the community.

Here are some nurses from the hospital along with my co-worker Debbie.  We had nurses at each event to teach women how to self breast examinations and answer any questions that they might have.

We're all about the presents and prizes at events.  We were donated gift certificates to hotels to give out as prizes.  We also bought some gifts to give out at each event.  We got them pedometers, little make up bags with the pink ribbon and a pretty towel that has our hospital logo on it.  Everyone loves getting gifts and winning a prize!  As you can see, we also bought pink boas and pink scarves that I found at the $1 section of Target for our staff to wear at each event.  Puts us in the mood and keeps things fun!
