Coping Through Laughter
Published October 2006
This year’s “My Mother, My Daughter, Myself” breast cancer luncheon had attendees thinking pink for breast cancer awareness. About 650 people attended this year’s event, held Sept. 13 at the Hyatt Regency downtown.
Keynote speaker Marisa Weiss, MD, director of breast radiation oncology at Lankenau Hospital in Wynnewood, Pa., shed her white coat and donned a hospital gown to engage the crowd in a comedic presentation on a serious topic—a good relationship with your doctor.
The event raised about $100,000 for the UC Barrett Cancer Center Pilot Projects Grant Program, an annual funding initiative to support translational cancer research ideas of UC physicians and scientists.
