Breast Cancer gives communities a perfect reason to work together. This past Friday night, Cape Fear Valley-Bladen Healthcare joined forces with East and West Bladen High schools to promote Breast Cancer Awareness month. Cape Fear Valley provided giveaways, games for the children and launched t-shirts into the crowds with assistance from the students at each high school according to Ashley Dowless, Marketing Director at Cape Fear Valley. All the fun and freebies not only brought smiles, but also awareness to a disease that affects one in every three women according to statistics.
Ashley said, “The best part of the event was breast cancer survivors stopping by our tent thanking us for being there and seeing our t-shirts in the crowd in support of this effort to educate everyone about Breast Cancer.”
“We snapped a picture with Sue Mote, a two time breast cancer survivor who was at the game to cheer for her grandson Donnie Ezzel who plays for East Bladen High School. She is a fighter for sure!” Ashley said.
The students were a big help according to Ashley. She wanted to give a special shout out saying, “Thank you to the Keyettes and cheerleaders for their help!”
