Please join us for a special afternoon of information, inspiration, and celebration at the 15th annual Breast Cancer Symposium, where we will be Wrapped in Hope.

This year’s speaker is Lara MacGregor, founder of Hope Scarves. Lara was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 when she was just 30 years old and seven months pregnant with her second son. Suddenly faced with a harsh new reality, she found hope and encouragement in a simple package another breast cancer survivor sent her. It contained several beautiful scarves the woman had worn when she lost her hair, along with a note saying, “You can do this.”

Symposium attendees are encouraged to bring gently used scarves to donate to Hope Scarves. Survivors are also encouraged to bring their story to be passed along to future scarf recipients.

Reservations are required. Priority registration given to breast cancer survivors. Open registration will run through Friday, Oct. 13. Please register online at or call 800-424-3627.
