Heart & Breast Health Event . . .

Standard

The event on Saturday went flawlessly (is that a word?).  We served about 60 women, 27 were scheduled for a free mammogram and we were able to get 3 more women in that showed up without an appointment.  There were another 30 that came for the speaking event and all felt it was very informative.  Two women that I spoke with left an impression on me. One had called me for a free mammogram because she had found a lump.  She (Janice) hadn’t had it looked at for a couple of years because she didn’t have health insurance.  Because she had a lump – she couldn’t do the mammogram on the van, she needed a “diagnostic” test.  I called Sandra Walters from St. Joe’s (one of our speakers) and Sandra was able to get her in at the Breast Care Center downtown.  Janice’s test came back fine and they told her to come back in a year for a follow-up.  It was the relief she had from a couple years of worrying that touched me.  She was so thankful to have that behind her now.  Another woman spoke to me after the event.  She had a call-back on a mammogram a while back and was afraid because no one really explained to her why she had to go back.  She told me how thankful she was because the speakers had answered so many questions that she had in her head.  I believe God put those women in the right place at the right time.  I felt like the event was a big success because my motive behind the event was . . . “Empowering Women With Knowledge”.  There was so much I didn’t know when I was diagnosed last summer, so I’m very thankful this morning that God opened the doors for this event to happen . . . a definite “note” going in my BLESSING’S JAR!!!!

A big thank you to all my friends who were so helpful and supportive!!! Thanks!!!!
