Cancer Survivors Urged to Promote Diagnosis, Prevention
Published September 2004
The 2004 luncheon, "My Mother, My Daughter, My Self: Make This the Last
Generation for Breast Cancer," featured guest speaker Jane Brody, New
York Times health columnist and best-selling author.
A breast cancer survivor herself, Brody offered an uplifting look at
dealing with breast cancer, with the message that women have to go on
with their lives, stay healthy, and do all they can to promote early
diagnosis and prevention.
"We've made progress," said Brody. "Millions of Americans are alive
today who would not have survived their cancer had their disease
occurred in the 1950s or 60s."
The 2004 luncheon, co-chaired by Lucinda Heekin and Kate Lawrence, was
a sell-out with more than 720 guests and raised more than $140,000.
Proceeds from Think Pink will benefit UC's Breast Cancer and the
Environment Research Center. The National Cancer Institute designated
UC as one of four national Breast Cancer and the Environment Research
Centers in 2003.
Major sponsors for the 2004 Think Pink luncheon were Western & Southern Financial Group and American Financial Group.
