I gladly write this sponsored post on behalf of the Mad Hatter Tea Party Event hosted by Methodist Richardson Medical Center in order help them promote the importance of 3D mammography
Last week I was enjoying lunch with my parents at a local restaurant when a couple sat down at a table nearby. The lady caught my dad’s attention. She was wearing a baseball cap, obviously to cover her head because she was bald. As my dad’s eyes began to water and his voice cracked a little, he wondered aloud if she might be battling some sort of cancer. This is a subject that has touched his life deeply. Sadly, all three of his sister battled and eventually were taken by cancer, two by breast cancer. While cancer may seem an odd topic for a “Food Blogger”, I’m sure most of my readers are women and it’s a very important subject for all of us, especially those of us over forty. But, even if you’re a lady who things 40 is an eternity away, it’s NEVER too early to be informed.
I want to tell you about an elegant, fun and informative event coming to the Dallas area, The Mad Hatter Tea Party, celebrating breast cancer fighters and survivors. The event is being sponsored by and held at Methodist Richardson Medical Center on September 12, from 10:30a m to 1:00 pm. This will be a festive event celebrating courageous women and their journey to conquer breast cancer. You’ll be able to enjoy the full Mad Hatter experience with a spot of tea, delicious food, elegant floral arrangements, and a day of pampering. This is an event ladies of all ages will enjoy.
Events will include:
- Chair Massages
- Hat and goblet decoration
Guests who have or are battling breast cancer will have the option to be honored by walking the pink carpet. Renowned breast cancer surgeon, Jenevieve Hughes, MD, will be the guest speaker.
One of the topics being discussed at the Matt Hatter Tea Party will be mammography, specifically 3D Mammography. It detects cancer even earlier than the traditional analogy method, potentially avoiding chemo or double mastectomy. Using 3-D also results in fewer callbacks for additional imaging, like ultrasound or additional mammography. I have personally been part of the 8 to 10 percent of patients requiring a callback. Although everything was fine, it’s never fun to get that call from your doctor. Also, no doctor’s order is needed to schedule your 3D mammogram.
Best of all, this event is FREE! Space is limited so grab a friend and sign up today!
