Fall Luncheon and Style Show Celebrates Local Cancer Survivors

The Women’s Task Force of St. Joseph Regional Medical Center cordially invites you to attend the 8th Annual Secret Sisters Society Luncheon and Style Show at 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 9th at the Joyce Athletic and Convocation Center. The annual event celebrates local cancer survivors and promotes the early detection of breast cancer by providing screening mammograms for underserved women in the community.

WNDU news anchor Tricia Sloma will co-emcee the luncheon and style show with Michael Method, MD, MPH, Medical Advisor for the Women’s Task Force. Local cancer survivors of all ages will share their inspiring stories of courage and determination as they model fall fashion trends before an audience that has grown to more than 1,400 over the last seven years.

The 8th Annual Secret Sisters Society Luncheon and Style Show is open to anyone. Individual reservations are $35, with patron tables and other sponsorship opportunities available. To reserve your seat or table, please call 574-247-8797. All proceeds benefit the Secret Sister’s Society.

“You don’t have to be a breast cancer survivor to attend,” said Joan Lennon, Coordinator for the Women’s Task Force. “We love meeting people and making new friends. Everyone who attends the Secret Sisters Society Luncheon helps provide life-saving services for women in our community.”

Founded in 2001, the Secret Sisters Society is a fund that provides screening mammograms for underserved women ages 40-49. These women would qualify for the Breast & Cervical Cancer Program due to income, but would not receive a screening mammogram until they reach the age of 50. The Secret Sisters Society has provided more than 2,000 screening mammograms to women in our community. Anyone can become a Secret Sister by making a tax-deductible membership donation of $50 or more.

The Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center Women's Task Force is comprised of women cancer survivors. The Women’s Task Force raises awareness and develops initiatives for women's health issues, including recommending and implementing programs that relate directly to women and cancer, promoting early detection, treatment options, supportive care and survivorship.
