Women’s Night Out 2019

More than 800 people attended Women’s Night Out on Tuesday night, the Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s annual event honoring breast cancer survivors and their families. It included a silent auction, exhibit with Lexington Medical Center clinicians, dinner, a keynote speaker and fashion show with models who are breast cancer survivors.

Proceeds from Women’s Night Out benefit the Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s Campaign for Clarity through the Crystal Smith Breast Cancer Fund. The capital campaign is close to reaching its goal of raising enough money to provide 3-D mammography throughout the hospital’s network of care. 3-D mammography can detect cancerous tumors in the breast as small as 2 millimeters.

Meet the Patients: A Breast Cancer Survivor Story

Beth Addison is a mom of two teenage girls. She was diagnosed with breast cancer one year ago after a 3-D mammogram at Lexington Medical Center.

She underwent a year of treatment that included chemotherapy at Lexington Oncology, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice.

Beth also was featured as a model in our Women’s Night Out fashion show this year. The event honors breast cancer survivors and their families, and raises money for the Campaign for Clarity, a capital campaign to expand 3-D mammography throughout our hospital’s network of care.

In this WLTX news story, she shares her journey and what she learned along the way.

Lexington Medical Center diagnoses more than 250 cases of breast cancer each year. 3-D mammography is an important tool because it can reveal cancerous tumors when they are just 1 to 2 millimeters in size. Early detection is key to treating breast cancer. Visit LexMed.com/Cancer to learn more about our hospital’s cancer program.
