Breast Cancer Awareness by Clovis Open MRI

 In two weeks, Clovis Open MRI, the Imaging Center of Clovis, and a number of Clovis Community College students are teaming up to hold a Breast Cancer Awareness event on October 11, 2012.  The event will be held at Faith Christian Family Church located at 3401 North Norris Clovis, NM 88101.  The event begins at 11:30 a.m. running until 1 p.m.

They will share information on mammograms and a local provider will explain and demonstrate self check exams and the importance of early detection.  Events will also include a gift basket giveaway, wish table, and balloon lift off of devotions for survivors and those lost.  There will also be a number of survivors sharing their stories.

This event will also feature the Pinky Swear campaign, which is dedicated to spreading awareness of breast cancer and the importance of early detection.  Attendees will be invited to sign a promise to beat breast cancer by performing self-check exams and getting annual mammograms, then passing on the promise to their family and friends.

Early detection is an integral part to survival and is the center of the Pinky Swear campaign.  The campaign was created to inspire people to spread the word and save their loved ones.  The Pinky Swear Pledge was created for women to take a pledge that they would pay attention to their breast health and do self exams, while reminding their friends to do the same.

Clovis Open MRI hopes to see everyone come support this event.  They are looking forward to working with the Imaging Center of Clovis and the volunteers from ClovisCommunity college to make this event a success.
