The 5th Annual Pink Tea will honor Women Cancer Survivors and promote the concept that “your good health is in your hands.”

Concerned that not everyone had health insurance and were not able to afford mammograms and pap smears, a group of cancer survivors and their friends decided to help correct this situation. So, four years ago, the Pink Angels arrived in Hampton Roads.

Each year the group celebrates with a tea and presentation dealing with a health issue. This year, the two guests are members of the San Diego medical community. Dr. Anne Daigle, an epidemiologist, serves as liaison for many pharmaceutical companies, presenting information on clinical trials to the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Richard Heyman, a molecular scientist and Biotech CEO, serves on several scientific boards including the Salk Institute in San Diego.

The minimum contribution to attend is $7.50. All funds will be donated to the Beach Health Clinic in Virginia Beach, which provides mammograms and examinations for women who do not have insurance.

This tea is sponsored by the Pink Angels. For more information, call the temple at 757- 428-2591 or Renee Heyman at 757-853-2145.
