Breast cancer remains the most common cancer among women other than skin cancer. It’s the second-leading cause of cancer death, and about one in eight women will develop the disease in their lifetime. The disease consistently remains the most common cancer treated at Archbold’s Singletary Oncology Center.
On Friday, October 23, 2015, the Singletary Oncology Center will host the fourth annual A Pink Affair, a fashion show fundraiser featuring local cancer survivors as models.
“Archbold’s A Pink Affair is a time for our community to join with our local cancer survivors to celebrate life, and to support a very important cause—breast cancer awareness and screening in our community,” said Becky Troyer, Singletary Oncology Center administrator.
Proceeds from the Pink Affair will help fund the purchase of new 3D mammography equipment to be housed at the Archbold Women’s Center. This revolutionary technology provides radiologists the ability to examine breast tissue in much clearer and three-dimensional detail, as well as potentially detect breast cancer earlier, when treatment has been proven to be most effective.
