Westmoreland County Hosts Inspiring Exhibit Kick-off Celebrating Survivors

Westmoreland-Image-revisedThe PA Breast Cancer Coalition was honored to partner with Westmoreland Walks, Inc. and Excela Health to celebrate the life, courage, hope and dignity of breast cancer survivors earlier this month. Local survivors shared their incredible stories at the PBCC’s photo exhibit kick-off reception inside Excela Square at Norwin. Guests also learned about the importance of early detection and access to screening through a program at Excela called “Walk-In Wednesdays.” The photo exhibit features women from communities across Pennsylvania, sharing thoughts and photos following their breast cancer diagnosis.

“This exhibit, “67 Women, 67 Counties,” was something we started a few years ago.  And, this is hard to believe now, but in the 90s, there were many, many women who were not comfortable with saying, ‘I’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer,’” said PBCC President and Founder Pat Halpin-Murphy.  “That’s really what gave me the idea of having someone, a woman from each county in this state.”

Westmoreland Walks, Inc., a successful Grassroots Partner of the PBCC and Excela Health graciously offered to share the Coalition’s message of early detection and awareness with Westmoreland County between May 1 and 10.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to finding a cure for breast cancer now… so our daughters won’t have to!
