Megan wrote to a representative from the Learning Channel Television show “DC Cupcakes,” asking them to donate cupcakes to the breast screening event. Her mother, Brenda Lentz, works in the Mammography Department at Fairfield Medical Center. Megan came across the Susan G. Komen cupcakes while visiting their web site. She said, “I admired this idea and how the purchase of these cupcakes went to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.”
The women were greeted in the lobby and escorted to the FMC Mammography Suite. They were given special attention as they had their screening mammograms. Special treats were offered to them after their screenings thanks to DC Cupcakes from the Learning Channel TV program. The cupcakes were designed with a pink ribbon and participants were also given goodie bags containing nail polish donated by OPI.
“This event was well-received and is crucial in detecting breast cancer, as well as educating women on the importance of routine mammograms,” said Joyce Cox, Oncology Nurse Navigator at Fairfield Medical Center.
