2008 Ben Taub Breast Cancer Awareness Program and Survivor Celebration
Survivor Day, Oct. 17, 2008, was a special event which celebrates breast cancer survivors and raises breast cancer awareness at the Ben Taub Breast Oncology Clinic.
This year a number of congressmen and dignitaries including Al Green and Sheila Jackson Lee, Harris County Judge Ed Emmett, the Coach of the Houston Comets, Karleen Thompson, and chaplain Ladislao Robinson came and spoke at the meeting. A special congressional certificate of recognition was presented to the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center for sponsoring Survivor Day and providing care and education for minority and underinsured patients. The event was organized by Liz Michaels, our nurse practitioner at Ben Taub Hospital.
