AmeriHealth Caritas DC to Hold Breast Cancer Awareness Party

AmeriHealth Caritas District of Columbia will hold a “Purposely Involved N’ Keeping Individuals Educated” (P.I.N.K.I.E.) party this weekend at the United Medical Center in Southeast.

The Saturday, Oct. 28 event, which will be held from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., focuses on breast cancer awareness, particularly the importance of early screening for the disease.

The event will be co-hosted by community partner and breast cancer survivor Victorianne Russell-Walton, who tells anyone who asks that her battle is “90 percent spiritual and 10 percent physical.”

Though October serves as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the event aims to promote year-round awareness about the important health issue.

Through AmeriHealth Caritas D.C.’s P.I.N.K.I.E. parties, members receive breast cancer screenings and learn about the importance of mammograms in a comfortable, supportive and exciting atmosphere filled with music, dancing and Zumba classes.
