Power of Pink! is an educational forum to raise awareness about women and breast cancer. The Power of Pink! Luncheon, began 24 years ago as the Jan Moore Memorial Lecture. Ms. Moore lost her battle to breastcancer in 1993. Her courage and determination won the hearts of her friends, family, and hospital leaders, and as a result those who knew her wanted to help others know the facts about breast cancer. What began as a handful of women discussing breast cancer over sack lunches in the hall of CHI St. Luke's Health Memorial has grown to a luncheon that caters to more than 1200 women in Deep East Texas.
Livingston Power of Pink! is scheduled for Tuesday, October 18 at the Polk County Commerce Center,11:30 am - 1 pm. Tickets are available for $25 each at My Place Eatery, Petalz or Sherly's Flowers and Gifts. Reserved tables may be purchased for $250 (seats 8).

This year Power of Pink! will feature Karen Mills. A nationally touring comedian for 23 years, Karen has made a career out of making people laugh. She has a straight-forward approach to the realities of life and her smart, funny, keen observations will keep the audience laughing as they relate to her experiences. Diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2013, Karen was determined to take on the disease with hope and humor. She turned her pain into punchlines and is now presenting her comedy with a message. Her presentation will remind attendees that your spirit shines through your smile, not your hair.
