On Friday, October 12, 2018, breast cancer survivors are invited to attend an afternoon of fellowship and celebration sponsored by the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition, the Cancer Support Community of Delaware, the American Cancer Society, and Nanticoke Health Services. The annual Pink Ribbon Survivors Tea will be held from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at the Seaford Library and Cultural Center in the Woodruff Room.

A cancer survivor from each group hosting the event will speak briefly about their organization. Light refreshments will be provided. Seating is limited, so please RSVP by October 5!
During the month of October, Nanticoke Health Services will host several activities to promote breast cancer awareness including the annual Pink Ribbon Walk scheduled for Monday, October 1 at 6:30 pm, and the month-long “Bling the Bra” fundraiser contest which benefits the Nanticoke Breast Cancer Fund to pay for mammograms for local women who cannot afford them.
