The PBCC’s traveling photo exhibit, 67 Women, 67 Counties: Facing Breast Cancer in Pennsylvania made a visit to Huntingdon County in May. The display, hosted in the main lobby of J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital, features photos and comments from women from each of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties on their experience living with breast cancer. Huntingdon County exhibit participant and breast cancer survivor Billie Hammond (shown left) spoke at the opening reception.
PBCC Executive Director Heather Hibshman served as emcee for the opening reception. In addition to Billie and Heather, speakers at the reception included Joseph J. Peluso, J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital President & CEO; Maria T. Pettinger, M.D., Chief of Staff & Department of Radiology Medical Director of J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital; and Pat Kepple, a local breast cancer survivor.
