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.

Thinking Pink

We’re lighting up our hospital in pink this month to show support for breast cancer survivors everywhere. Statistics show that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Early detection is key. Monthly self-breast exams and routine mammograms are important. To learn about cancer care at Lexington Medical Center, visit LexMed.com/Cancer.
