October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Washington Hospital
is inviting local residents to the 10th anniversary of the annual Think Pink event on October 18, 2018.
Think Pink is a free event that offers the latest information on breast
cancer prevention and treatment, living with advanced breast cancer, and
tips for feeling better and leading a healthier life. The event runs from
5 to 7:30 p.m. and will be held in the Tent Atrium at Washington West,
located at 2500 Mowry Ave. in Fremont. Light refreshments will be provided.

“Think Pink is really for everyone – women who are undergoing
treatment, survivors and their loved ones, and anyone who wants to prevent
breast cancer,” said Dr. Victoria Leiphart, a Washington Township
Medical Foundation gynecologist and member of the Washington Hospital
medical staff who will emcee the event.
