MONMOUTH MEDICAL CENTER
The Leon Hess Cancer Center Council hosted the 5th Annual Swing Pink event on Sept. 23 at the Navesink Country Club. Guests enjoyed a morning of golf, tennis, paddle and pickle ball, followed by a luncheon with guest speaker and grateful patient Kelly Thomas, who captured the room with her story as a breast cancer survivor. Proceeds from this year’s event go toward the purchase of the Hologic Selenia 2D Mammography unit, which provides patients with low dose digital exposure and excellent image quality. The Swing Pink Committee continues to raise awareness for programs and top-of-the-line equipment for patients diagnosed with breast cancer.
