THE WOODLANDS, TX ; The MD Anderson Regional Care Center in The Woodlands will recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month by lighting Market Square all in pink from 7-9 p.m. today and Friday.

The Pink Lighting event is held each year to literally and publicly shine a light on breast cancer and resources available in the community to those facing the disease.

The MD Anderson Regional Care Center in The Woodlands offers a growing range of services, including many specific to the treatment of breast disease. The team includes experts in medical, surgical and radiation oncology, supported by advanced practice nurses, pain specialists, nutritionists and social workers. The center also is available to patients who have a questionable breast lump or irregular mammogram who would like to be evaluated or who want a second opinion.

The faculty and staff at The Woodlands Regional Care Center, located on the campus of St. Luke's Hospital, see patients diagnosed with a range of cancers, both rare and common. Every patient seen at the center has access to multidisciplinary care, onsite chemotherapy infusion, radiation treatment, pain management and supportive care.

The MD Anderson Regional Care Center in The Woodlands has a specialized onsite nurse navigator who assists each new breast patient through the process of diagnosis, treatment and beyond, and also oversees support groups such as Breast Friends and Look Good ... Feel Better.


As part of the live music tonight, Woodlands-area patients and survivors will be recognized, including those who participate in the center's breast cancer support group, Breast Friends.

MD Anderson staff will be on hand during the event to pass out free educational materials and pink glow necklaces to spread the light of breast cancer awareness and hope." Posted by Tamborrel Bulox Team on
