USC marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month with game-day celebration
>USC Norris Cancer Hospital recognized breast cancer awareness month on Oct. 20 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum before the USC and Colorado football game, by celebrating the researchers, physicians and patients who fight against breast cancer every day.
Before the game, physicians and patients volunteered at the Keck Medical Center of USC booth and distributed giveaways and information on breast cancer services. The highlight of the day was when Trojan fans saluted the nine USC breast cancer physcians, patients and survivors, as they stood on the 50-yard line during a special halftime appearance.
“Being part of the Norris breast cancer awareness booth was an amazing experience and opportunity to remind women to get their yearly exams, since early detection is key. The doctors and nurses at Norris are the best, and I am so grateful for their expertise, compassion and dedication to finding a cure toward breast cancer,” said patient Rose Low.
