More than 900 people attended Lexington Medical Center’s annual Women’s Night Out last night to celebrate breast cancer survivors. This year’s edition was most highly attended ever. Women’s Night Out benefits the Crystal Smith Fund at the Lexington Medical Center Foundation. Named in honor of an LMC employee who died of breast cancer at the young age of 42, the fund helps cancer patients purchase needed resources and supplies.
This year’s speaker was breast cancer survivor Dee Dee Ricks, an activist for patient navigation and caring for women who do not have the financial resources to pay for treatment. She was the subject of an HBO Documentary called The Education of Dee Dee Ricks.
Here are some photos.
