Medical City Plano hosts "An Evening of Pink" with Janet St. James
PLANO, Texas – Medical City Plano is hosting "An Evening of Pink" for patients, caregivers and friends of those affected by breast cancer, themed "Fight the Fight! Win the Journey!" Janet St. James, former WFAA-TV medical reporter and the current assistant vice president of strategic communications for Medical City Healthcare, will talk about her own breast cancer battle and the importance of staying physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually fit.
"Cancer is an ordeal. While the support of friends and family is critical, it's also important for cancer patients to build themselves up for the long fight," says St. James. "In addition to being your own best advocate when it comes to healthcare, I believe that physical activity and mental positivity adds strength to the power of excellent medicine for anyone fighting cancer."
St. James was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2015, the Friday before starting her job at Medical City Healthcare. After four rounds of chemo, six weeks of radiation and seven surgeries to date, St. James openly shares her experience via Facebook blogging and public speaking in the hopes of providing information that may help another patient or caregiver.
"An Evening of Pink" will also feature a breast surgeon on staff at Medical City Plano. Dinner is provided.
