7th Annual Celebration supporting Breast Cancer awareness around the Permian Basin.

Stephanie Beidler, MD and staff attended this year’s annual Pink the Basin event as a Pink Angel sponsor in order to support Breast Cancer patients and Breast Cancer Awareness. Pink the Basin is a yearly event that raises funds in order to provide financial support for mammograms to those who otherwise would not be able to afford this life saving exam. Over 1200 people where in attendance to celebrate the 7th annual event. This year’s event took place in Odessa and Geralyn Lucas, author of Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy was this year’s guest speaker.

Dr. Beidler and her staff continue to support Breast Cancer patients and encourage everyone to take the necessary precautions to protect their health by doing regular self-checkups and yearly Mammograms. If you are in need of assistance in order to obtain a mammogram please contact Midland Memorial Hospital’s Nurse Navigator, Charliss Rodgers, RN at (432) 522-3220.
