Breast Cancer awareness month, pink lights wrap the antler arch

JACKSON, Wyo. — October is Breast cancer awareness month; this year St. John’s Health and St. John’s Health Foundation has wrapped the southwest antler arch on the town square in pink lights. 

“Although the pandemic prevents us from hosting a ‘Light the Town Pink’ event this year, we invite the public to take their photo under the arch, and post it on social media with the hashtag #gopinkjh,” said Karen Connelly, communications officer at St. John’s Health. “We want to remind people that all women, age 40 and up, should get a mammogram every year. St. John’s has enacted enhanced protocols to keep you safe in our care.”

For uninsured or underinsured patients, financial resources are available to help cover the cost of a mammogram and follow-up care if necessary. For information, please call 307.739.7544 or click here for information on the St. John’s Health Foundation Women’s Health Care Fund.

People who have completed or who are undergoing cancer treatment are eligible for free survivorship services, including yoga, physical and occupational therapy, and massage therapy, through a pilot program of the St. John’s Health Foundation. 

St. John’s Health and St. John’s Health Foundation thank the following for supporting vital health care services for women in our community: Soroptimist of Jackson Hole, Stripping for a Cure, the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, St. John’s Auxiliary, the Teton Pines Women’s Golf Association, and individual donors to the Foundation.

For more information about survivorship programs, call the oncology social worker Lynnette Gaertner, MSW, at 307.739.6190 or click here. For more information on available breast cancer resources, click here.
