Power of Pink

POP_Logo_2017.jpg#asset:47472

Power of Pink! is an educational forum which raises awareness about women and breast cancer in a fun and inspirational atmosphere. The Power of Pink! Luncheon, began 26 years ago as the Jan Moore Memorial Lecture. Ms. Moore lost her battle to breast cancer in 1993, but her courage and determination won the hearts of her friends, family, and hospital leaders. As a result those who knew her best wanted to help inform others about breast cancer. What began as a handful of women discussing breast cancer over sack lunches in the hall of CHI St. Luke's Health-Memorial has grown to a luncheon that caters to more than 1200 women in Deep East Texas.
