Women Who Brunch raises $10,000 for breast cancer patients

SUBMITTED PHOTO - Women Who Brunch, a program of the Women of Meridian Park, was held May 1 at Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar. It sold out again this year, with more than 150 guests attending. We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of so many, including our partners at Bridgeport Village, for raising more than $10,000 to support the Women of Meridian Parks efforts to help breast cancer patients at Legacy Meridian Parks Breast Health Center, said Allyson Anderson, CEO at Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center. By providing comfort items, post-operative garments and preventative care, the Women of Meridian Park hope to alleviate some of the challenges women with breast cancer face. During the event Dr. Emily Hu, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center, demonstrated the comfort bags and specialized bras that are provided to patients to make their treatment and recovery easier. She also walked the runway as a model.
