Pink Glove Love

LMC nurse Amy Kinard with Maia Cammisa, third grader at Ballentine Elementary School

Maia Cammisa, third grader at Ballentine Elementary School, visited Lexington Medical Center on October 30th to talk about the Pink Glove Dance and meet the star of this year’s video, LMC nurse Amy Kinard.

Maia, age 7, selected our Pink Glove Dance as the topic for a current events project in her class.  

“You have to get something really cool to put in the current events notebook,” she said.

Maia told us that she knows several women in her community who are breast cancer survivors.  And, there’s a history of breast cancer in her family.

“It’s something that happens to a lot of women,” she said.

Maia first learned about the Pink Glove Dance last year when a woman in her school’s office was diagnosed with breast cancer at LMC.  Students watched the Pink Glove Dance in her honor.

Maia’s favorite part of this year’s video was the skydiving sequence.

Thank you, Maia, for telling your school about our video and raising awareness about breast cancer!
