If you know a lady or gentleman that has been affected with breast cancer, they are invited to join in on the monthly programs held at Methodist Sugar Land Hospital. Most gatherings are held the 3rd Thursday of each month at 5:30 and you may call 281-274-7164 to confirm dates and times. This group has been given the name SOS, Survivors Offering Support. Programs are ongoing and are presented by Reconstruction of a Survivor (ROAS), with support from the Susan G Komen Foundation. ROAS, a 501 (c) (3), provides multiple support sessions around the greater Houston area for people diagnosed at any stage of breast cancer.
ROAS is hosting a fundraiser and fashion show called “The Beauty in the Journey” at the Gremillion & Co. Fine Art Gallery in West University, on Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 6 pm to 8:30 pm. Event highlights include cuisine presented by Reef, Ibiza, Armandos and GiGi’s Asian Bistro and Dumpling Bar, special guests, a silent auction and giveaways.
One out of eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. While there is no cure, ROAS is committed to fighting the disease through breath health education. “Our mission is to provide breast health education to women across the greater Houston area and beyond,” said Dr. Jennie Bennett, director and founder of Reconstruction of a Survivor. “We also focused on the homeless because very few breast health organizations provide education & resource information to them. We are engaging these women at several shelters to understand appropriate breast health and know the services available to them.”
Individual tickets are $100. Sponsorships starts at $500. Tickets can be purchased on the ROS website at www.roasurvivor.org. The address to the Gremillion & Co. Fine Art Gallery is 2501 Sunset Blvd., Houston, TX 77005. For more information about the event or sponsorships, please contact Simply El Events at 832-317-4064 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
