Women's Cancer Awareness Night OutAug 31, 2015
Good Morning America’s Amy Robach Headlines Women’s Cancer Awareness Night OutTurlock, CA— Amy Robach, Good Morning America news anchor, will headline Emanuel Cancer Center’s annual Women’s Cancer Awareness Night Out, coming October 16.
Robach was diagnosed with breast cancer after getting a mammogram in New York City’s Times Square for a segment on Good Morning America. At 40 and with no cancer history in her family, Robach thought she was years away from needing to begin regular breast-cancer screenings, but got the test anyway at the urging of friend and Good Morning America colleague Robin Roberts, herself a cancer survivor.
Robach will share her story at Emanuel’s Women’s Cancer Awareness Night Out, to be held at Monte Vista Chapel in Turlock. Tickets are free, but must be reserved in advance, beginning September 16 at 6 a.m. To reserve tickets – limited to two per person – call toll free to (888) 545-6979, or order online at https://www.emanuelmedicalcenter.org/services/oncology. Tickets for the annual event are usually at capacity quickly, so early reservations are highly recommended.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. on event day. Cancer survivors are invited to gather at 6:45 p.m. for the always-inspiring survivors’ procession at 7 p.m. that opens the program. After Robach’s speech, there will be a dessert reception at 8:30 p.m. held at Monte Vista Chapel, 1619 East Monte Vista Ave.
