Lighting of the Pink Ribbon Event Planned to Kick Off Breast Cancer Awareness Month
On Monday, Oct. 3, UNC Health Southeastern will host a ceremonial lighting of a pink ribbon atop the medical center to kick off October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which promotes awareness, prevention, and early detection. The event will return to in-person this year and will also be livestreamed via UNC Health Southeastern’s Facebook page. The public is invited to Southeastern Radiology Associates at 209 W 27th Street, Lumberton, for tours to view 3-D mammography technology, beginning at 6 p.m. Tours will be followed by a program at 6:45 p.m. which will include a presentation about the importance of early breast cancer detection by Dr. Zapawa, special entertainment, survivor testimonies, and the grand finale--the lighting of the pink ribbon which will be viewed from the Southeastern Radiology Associates parking lot.
