Middlesboro ARH Hospital to Hold 11th Annual Breast Cancer Survivors Tree Lighting


October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and Middlesboro ARH Hospital will be holding its 11th annual Breast Cancer Survivors Tree Lighting Ceremony on October 15 in the hospital lobby. Breast cancer survivors throughout the Tri-State are invited to attend.

“It is always an honor for our hospital to host breast cancer survivors during our annual tree lighting ceremony,” said Michael Slusher, Middlesboro ARH Community CEO. “During the event, we recognize their courage, and we share in their hope for a cure. For those breast cancer survivors who have not yet attended our tree lighting ceremony, we invite you to join us and experience the support and compassion.”

Prior to the tree lighting ceremony, Judy Cox, breast cancer survivor and former ARH employee, will share her story.

Each breast cancer survivor will be given an ornament to personalize and hang during the tree lighting ceremony. Once all the ornaments are hung, the tree will be lit, symbolizing hope, encouragement and strength.

The tree lighting ceremony and celebration will be held in the front lobby of Middlesboro ARH Hospital on Tuesday, October 15 at 6:00 p.m. Registration begins at 5:30 p.m. For more information or to reserve your ornament for the tree, please call Heather Cox at 606.242.1561.

Breast cancer survivors: Ruby Kaw, Claudia Jarvis and Mary Lou Walzer attended a previous tree lighting ceremony at Middlesboro ARH Hospital. All breast cancer survivors are invited to attend this year’s tree lighting on Tuesday, October 15 at 6 p.m.
