Beebe Healthcare’s Robert and Evelyn Tunnell Cancer Center will host its inaugural Pink Ribbon Open House for survivors of breast cancer from 3 to 7 p.m. Oct. 22 at Tunnell Cancer Center, 18947 J. Williams Highway, Rehoboth Beach.
“Over the last several decades, many strides have been made in the advancements of breast cancer treatments. With more survivors than ever, it is with great pride that we are able to honor those in Sussex County who have fought this disease. With survival, however, comes the responsibility of maintaining well-being. This survivor celebration will guide participants through the steps needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle — including nutrition, exercise and stress relief techniques,” said Judith Ramirez, manager of Oncology Population Health, Tunnell Cancer Center.
The open house will provide the opportunity to meet and greet with breast cancer specialists and network with other survivors. A variety of health and wellness workshops will be offered on every half-hour. In addition, vendors will offer tips on health, wellness and fashion. Free flu shots will be offered. There will be food and musical entertainment. Drawings and prizes will be awarded.
Beebe Healthcare is partnering with Pink Ribbon Boutique to celebrate breast cancer survivors and showcase ongoing supportive services available, including the latest in mastectomy and lymphedema products.
The open house also offers an opportunity for survivors of breast cancer to provide input to further develop and shape the future of the Beebe Breast Center.
