The first ever Project Pink fashion show held at the Middlesex Hospital yielded a sold-out crowd, which had gathered together to promote breast cancer awareness
, according to a recent report from NECN.com.
About 125 people attended the show, where 10 breast cancer survivors were honored.
All proceeds went to the Center for Survivorship and Integrative Medicine as well as the Comprehensive Breast Center.
"It is a wonderful way to make money for the cancer center. It's a wonderful way to honor these ladies and their survivorship. These ladies have been through incredible journeys," Trish Hatin, a mammographer and volunteer at the event, told the news source.
Tickets were sold at $30 each and all hair-styling, makeup and clothing were donated for the event.
Mammograms are one of the best ways to detect breast cancer. They are recommended for all women over the age of 40 on a yearly basis by the American Cancer Society. Women should educated themselves about the risks of breast cancer, their own family history as well as ways that they can keep healthy and lower the chances of breast cancer through a positive lifestyle.
