St David’s Georgetown CEO Hugh Brown waits for the countdown

Breast cancer survivors, as well as friends and family members of breast cancer patients, released (biodegradable) white and pink balloons October 23 to honor women who have lost their battle with breast cancer and to celebrate the lives of those who have survived. Proceeds from the purchase of each balloon benefit the Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas.

It was a perfect fall morning for survivors, family and friends were joined by hospital staff to release over 200 balloons in a ceremony that is becoming more and more commonplace across the country.

Hospital CEO Hugh Brown said, “As the only hospital in Georgetown, we feel a real responsibility to the community to be able to provide care for all needs. Everyone I know, knows someone affected by breast cancer and over the years, we have tried to find different ways of raising awareness. Last year (Director of Physician Relations) Donna Langbein asked to do something more significant and with more visibility, and this balloon event has brought in a lot of people, everyone from staff to residents have certainly embraced it.”

We are so happy to help empower women to take charge of their own health, get tested, and also to honor women who have not survived.”
