In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Glenwood’s Breast Health Center hosted its 7th Annual Think Pink Tea on Friday October 23. The event was held at the West Monroe Convention Center where attendees enjoyed a delicious lunch and a variety of teas along with exclusive shopping with over 30 vendors.

This year’s keynote speaker was Lillie Shockney, Administrative Director of Johns Hopkins Breast Center. Shockney is a crusader for better care for breast cancer patients around the world. A two-time breast cancer survivor, she has published 14 books and over 250 articles in medical journals. It was a wonderful time of gathering for the survivors as well as their families and friends, celebrating life and the healing power of laughter.
