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 25 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.
This year, Power of Pink! is going to the dogs as we feature Teresa Rhyne. Teresa followed her dog’s lead in beating cancer and now shares those hard-earned lessons on surviving and thriving in a howlingly funny presentation that leaves guests smiling, inspired and ready to focus on finding the “cookies” in their own lives. Teresa is a #1 New York Times Bestselling author and has been interviewed on CNN, CBS and WGN as well as appearing in over fifty regional and national magazines and newspapers. Teresa’s presentation will show how she learned to think like an optimist when she most certainly felt like a pessimist.
