The hospital will provide a free lunch at the event which will be held from 11:45 a.m.-1 p.m. at the local hospital.
Surgeon Erin Cummins, MD, will share information about signs and symptoms of breast cancer, tools for early detection and staging, and the latest in breast cancer fighting technologies.
