Wellness and Empowerment Forum Will Bring Together Cancer Patients, Survivors, and Supporters

Memorial Healthcare System's Memorial Cancer Institute will host a free lecture April 20, highlighting lessons learned from cancer patients, breast cancer care from a breast surgeon’s perspective, and "How Integrative Medicine Empowers Women.”

The event, part of Memorial's annual Wellness and Empowerment Forum, will benefit the Pink Angels Memorial Foundation. 

Medical Director for the Division of Breast Surgical Oncology Dr. Heather Wright says this lecture is for everyone, not only cancer survivors, "It's always for family members, too, because they are an incredibly important part of maintaining that wellness of that patient, providing that support." 

Award winning television journalist, author and breast cancer survivor Joan Lunden will join in the event, sharing her personal experience with breast cancer.  In 2014, Lunden was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, which required chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation.  She decided to turn her diagnosis into an opportunity to help others, and now serves as an ambassador for Amgen’s Breakaway from Cancer.

The event will take place on Thursday, April 20, at the Diplomat Golf and Tennis Club at 501 Diplomat Parkway in Hallandale Beach. Reservations are required to attend. To reserve your place, log on to www.mhs.net/wellnessforum
