Group forms to support women affected by breast, ovarian and uterine cancers

Sep 22, 2010 9:57 AM

A new local volunteer group has recently been formed to create a supportive network for women affected by breast, ovarian and uterine cancers, according to a press release issued Sunday.

The Coalition for Women’s Cancers at Southampton Hospital plans to achieve its goal by focusing on early detection and empowerment, and hosting several events to raise awareness.

Susan Barry Roden of the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center at Southampton Hospital is heading up the coalition. Stacy Quarty is the vice president, Colleen Duell is the secretary and Gwen McGowan the treasurer.

The first coalition event will be a Girls’ Night Out on Thursday, September 30, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at 230 Elm in Southampton Village. Pink cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and music and salon services for $10, including manicures, blow-outs, pink extensions, massages, make-up applications and psychic readings, will be available as well as a “surprise” auction.

A prize will be awarded for the wildest pink outfit.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door and can be purchased at the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center, Q Studio in Southampton and Catena’s Food Market. All proceeds are to go toward the coalition. For more information, call Ms. Roden at 726-8715.
