Power of Pink

 

 

Power of Pink! is an educational forum to raise awareness about women and breast cancer.  The Power of Pink! Luncheon, began 20 years ago as the Jan Moore Memorial Lecture.  Ms. Moore lost her battle to breast cancer in 1993.  Her courage and determination won the hearts of her friends, family, and hospital leaders, and as a result those who knew her wanted to help others know the facts about breast cancer.  What began as a handful of women discussing breast cancer over sack lunches in the hall of Memorial Health System of East Texas has grown to a luncheon that caters to almost 800 women from the community.

 

This year’s luncheon featured Susan Sparks.  A trial lawyer, turned standup comedian and Baptist minister, Rev. Susan Sparks is America’s only female comedian with a pulpit.  Ms. Sparks, a breast cancer survivor, will present “Humor and Healing While Going Through Hell,” a program that explores the power of humor in difficult situations.  Ms. Sparks has been featured in “O (The Oprah) Magazine,” the New York Times, USA Today, CBS The Early Show, on ABC and CNN.  Her book, Laugh Your Way to Grace: Reclaiming the Spiritual Power of Humor was named one of the best spiritual books of 2010 with over 10,000 copies sold.

Community members were encouraged to decorate bras in memory or in honor of someone they know who has fought breast cancer or just to support the cause.  The decorated bras were judged prior to and displayed at the luncheon.
