Breast cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers in women – second only to skin cancer. That’s why Baylor Medical Center at McKinney is hosting a free breast cancer awareness luncheon and panel discussion for women on Friday, Oct. 10.

“It’s important for women to talk about breast cancer and arm themselves with knowledge,” explains Baylor McKinney oncology nurse navigator Catherine Reidy, RN. “At the luncheon, ladies will have the opportunity to learn important facts about breast cancer, as a panel of physicians and survivors discuss their experience with the disease and how to fight it. We’ll also discuss how to effectively provide support if someone you love is facing a diagnosis of breast cancer,” continues Reidy.

Complimentary lunch begins at 11:45 a.m. on the Baylor McKinney Lower Level in the Independent Bank Auditorium, and the one-hour program starts at noon. To register, visit BaylorHealth.com/McKinney, or call 1-800-4BAYLOR (422-9566).
