In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine has once again teamed up with CBS Radio St. Louis to “Light the Town Pink” with pink light bulbs. The Young Women’s Breast Cancer Program (YWBCP) began in 2001 at the Siteman Cancer Center and Washington University in St. Louis. We partner with young survivors to implement strategies that meet the age-relevant needs of young women. Working together, we believe positive change is possible.
The Young Women’s Breast Cancer Program:
- Offers support and education programs.
- Organizes fun, health-focused activities.
- Selects young survivors to serve as a peer advisors and pairs them with young women recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
- Produces written materials for women who are newly diagnosed and young survivors.
- Raises awareness regarding the unique issues facing women diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age.
- Conducts research focused on early onset breast cancer.
The light bulbs can be purchased through Oct. 31, while supplies last, at all three Siteman locations, CBS Radio offices and many other locations in the community. The cost is $3 each.
All proceeds from light bulb sales will benefit Siteman’s Young Women’s Breast Cancer Program (YWBCP) and screening mammography services. Since 2001, the YWBCP has provided support and educational opportunities to young women diagnosed with breast cancer and young survivors. The program also conducts research to identify genetic factors important in the development of breast cancer in young women.
The Breast Health Outreach Program at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and the Siteman Cancer Center is the largest program of its kind in Missouri. It was developed in response to a 2004 Washington University research study that showed a massive cluster of late-stage breast cancer in the urban St. Louis area. This finding was an urgent call to action and continues to drive our mission to bring mammography to underserved communities. Our mobile mammography van and staff are critical factors in achieving our goals of greatly reducing late-stage diagnoses and helping to guide women speedily and compassionately along the screening, diagnostic, and treatment continuum. Over time, the outreach program has grown to link ever-increasing numbers of patients with the highest quality screening and diagnostic services. In 2011,we served nearly 5000 underserved low income women. This could not happen without the moral support and financial commitment of the St. Louis Community. Together, thanks to events such as Light the Town Pink, we save lives, one mammogram at a time.
Light The Town Pink is sponsored by GCS Credit Union.
