Welcome to Surviving & Thriving 2014!

In its 12th season, we are excited to invite you to join us in celebrating another year of surviving and thriving in the Brazos Valley with our annual luncheon on Wednesday, September 24! Over the past 11 years, this community luncheon has raised more than $400,000 to help cancer patients and their loved ones by providing life-saving equipment and quality-of-life services.

This year, the Surviving & Thriving Luncheon is being hosted by the Pink Alliance, a local non-profit organization and advocate for breast health and cancer support in the Brazos Valley. Alliance board members have joined a group of dedicated community volunteers in hosting this year’s annual luncheon. Proceeds from the luncheon will support local breast cancer programs offered through the local American Cancer Society and the Pink Alliance.

As the community’s premiere women’s health awareness event, Surviving & Thriving continues to touch the lives of breast cancer patients, survivors and women. In so doing, the committee remains focused on its initial goal – to provide resources and support to local breast cancer patients and recognize breast cancer survivors.

A special thanks to the countless medical professionals and business sponsors who continue to support and advocate for this important women’s health issue.

Thank you for joining us as we celebrate another year of “Surviving & Thriving.”

If you would like to become a part of this event, call Reba Ragsdale at 979.229.1200.

The Pink Alliance provides reliable, informative resources, inspires hope through individual and group support, and offers access to medical treatments for those with limited means. In 2013, the Pink Alliance partnered with Health for All in hosting its inaugural Mammograms for the Brazos Valley Day which provided over 25 free mammograms to women in need. Last year, 124 breast cancer patients received over $53,000 in medical financial assistance from the Alliance.
