Pardee Hospital’s breast cancer support group, Breast Friends Forever, held a special Celebration of Life Ceremony on Oct. 25 at the Elizabeth Reilly Breast Center.
The event is the third annual ceremony which celebrates women who have overcome issues related to breast cancer and survivorship. Survivors of breast cancer were able to share their stories and experiences with others. Kristy Capps, Breast Care Navigator and support group facilitator, led the group of breast cancer survivors in a special balloon release using biodegradable balloons.
The Breast Friends Forever support group meets monthly at the Elizabeth Reilly Breast Center at Pardee and is open to women who currently have breast cancer or have previously been treated for the disease. This group is free and open to the public. For more information about this support group, contact Kristy Capps at (828) 698-7334.
