Event Educates Attendees on Breast Cancer

Houston Methodist Breast Care Center at The Woodlands educated women about the importance of breast health at the 3rd Annual Positively Pink event, held at Dosey Doe – The Big Barn in The Woodlands, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Positively Pink included an informative Q&A session with Dr. Magda Ghobashy, medical director of Houston Methodist Breast Care Center at The Woodlands, where she demystified the most common reasons women don’t get annual mammograms.

Positively Pink also provided an opportunity for guests to meet the hospital’s comprehensive breast care team.

“We hope everyone who attended Positively Pink left understanding the importance of having a screening mammogram every year, beginning at age 40, or earlier if you have a family history of breast cancer,” said Ghobashy. “Early detection is so important because the earlier breast cancer is found, the easier it is to treat.”

Entergy Texas supported the educational portion of the event, which was followed by a surprise musical performance by actor Charles Esten, best known for his role as Deacon Claybourne on the television series ‘Nashville.’

“I thought the event was super. When the doctor addressed the top ten reasons why women hesitate to get a mammogram, it really touched on all the things I’ve worried about. I just turned 40 and I have been apprehensive about getting a mammogram, but they really addressed my concerns,” said Ashley Vanar of The Woodlands, “And getting to hear Charles Esten perform was such a surprise. He was incredible, sweet and very engaging with everyone.”
