Woman’s Hospital Committed to Breast Cancer Care; Sets New Date for BUST Breast Cancer Event.

January 25, 2022

BATON ROUGE, La. – Woman’s Hospital has rescheduled its annual BUST Breast Cancer event to March 30 due to the most recent COVID surge. The popular breast cancer fundraiser features cancer survivors modeling local artists’ bra-art designs at L’Auberge Baton Rouge, plus a silent and live auction and food from local restaurants.

“Many of our models and guests are cancer survivors, so the responsible decision was to host our event at a later date when we can better ensure a safe environment,“ said Keila Stovall, Woman’s chief philanthropy officer. “BUST Breast Cancer provides funding for Woman’s Mobile Mammography program which increases access to mammograms for thousands of women throughout south Louisiana.”

Woman’s two mobile mammography coaches bring life-saving breast cancer screenings to churches, workplaces, and community centers. In 2021, the program provided over 3,700 screening mammograms.

“We are grateful to everyone who continues to support this event because their generosity gives more women access to life-saving mammograms, financial assistance for medications and transportation, cancer rehab services, survivorship events, and palliative care,” said Stovall.

The community can continue to support Woman’s Hospital’s breast cancer care.
