South Central Conference office staff celebrated co-workers, family, and friends who survived the devastating disease breast cancer. For the month ofOctober our morning worships spoke to overcoming sickness and setbacks and experiencing the healing power of God. Information was shared to educate each worker on preventative measures and practices to help identify symptoms and points that one can talk with their doctors on their next visit when concerns of cancer is present. Early detection is known to increase survivability. Each staff member wore a pink lapel pins and pink t-shirts in support of BreastCancer Awareness month.
To culminate the month-long educational and celebration efforts, the office provided a delicious meal and presented each attendee with a Breast CancerAwareness medallion. At the meal a moment of silence was observed in honor of family and friends who lost their fight with breast cancer. A gift of gratitude was presented to Mrs. Laurene Brown, Administrative Assistant to the conference president, who is a survivor. Mrs. Brown shared her appreciation of the honor and thanked God and her co-workers for the support given during her fight. The office staff culminated the month-long celebration with a symbolic walk-a-thon. Every worker walked around the office complex in honor of all survivors!
