Attend Legacys Brave Day

Meridian Park event focuses on breast cancer awareness


Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center will host a variety of Brave Day events and informative workshops focused on breast cancer education and awareness.

The first of the series is planned for March 21 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the hospital’s Community Education Building, 19300 SW 65th Ave. in Tualatin.

Spearheaded by plastic surgeons Dr. Elisa Burgess and Dr. Emily Hu, the event will feature a celebrity bra-signing event and mini-fit session with Monica Carlson, season one winner of “American Gladiators” and a former Portland Trail Blazer dancer. Carlson is also a sponsored athlete for Handful, a local bra company that offers options for women with breast cancer and beyond. There will also be a keynote speaker, music, raffles, food and a range of organizations dedicated to breast cancer awareness and support.

The event is open to breast cancer survivors and the general public. For more information call 503-699-6464 or visit pinklemonadeproject.org.
