The Fayette County Memorial Hospital (FCMH) Foundation recently held its first Worship in Pink (WIP) introduction breakfast. This program is for congregations of all faiths with the goal of increasing breast cancer awareness and linking women to local resources.
FCMH’s own Phillip Webb led the group in an opening prayer before enjoying a buffet breakfast. Julie McMahon, director of mission at Susan G. Komen Columbus, presented information to the group about Susan G. Komen’s mission and progress, as well as the details of the WIP program.
All the necessary materials are provided to plan an educational event during October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, on either Oct. 4, 11, 18 or 25. Other dates are available if you plan to have it on a different day of the week. This program is provided free of charge as an educational event towards Susan G. Komen Columbus’ mission of ending breast cancer forever.
Representatives from the congregations were then given the opportunity to decide if they wish to register to hold their own WIP event at their congregation in the month of October. For more information and to register your congregation, please contact Shara Evans at 740-333-5186 or [email protected]
