Breast Cancer Awareness Month at DOC
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we thank all of the heroic physicians, nurses, medical personnel, and facilities staff who continue to provide their patients with world-class medical care and safe, warm environments during this challenging time. While COVID-19 has forced us to reimagine many aspects of our lives, we know that the fight against breast cancer hasn’t stopped for a moment.
This month, DOC committed to elevating our breast cancer awareness efforts across our portfolio:
At the Baylor Scott & White Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center in Dallas, Texas, we’ve incorporated thoughtful pink touches throughout the facility, including a striking pink ribbon woven into the building’s signature living wall in the lobby. Property staff is sporting sleek pink and distributing pink bracelets inscribed with inspirational messages. The building’s patient programming has a pink twist, too, like this month’s Halloween pet costume contest with a special prize for the best pink costume.
In Nebraska, our tenants participated in a penny drive to support the local chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Each medical office received a glass vase adorned with a pink ribbon to collect coins. Over $250 worth of loose change was collected, matched by DOC to $500, and donated to the local Komen chapter.
Meanwhile, additional DOC properties in Washington and Kentucky have been distributing pink cookies to patients and health care partners to raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer. In Kentucky, the cookies are also supporting locally-owned, small businesses, as a trio of Louisville-based bakeries have signed on to create unique Breast Cancer Awareness Month-themed designs.
To all of our partners and staff working to raise awareness, lift patient spirits, and maintain safe spaces for patients to receive life-saving preventative care and cancer treatment, thank you.
