Mississippi Baptist Event Supports Breast Cancer Awareness, Screening

Mississippi Baptist Medical Center and the Junior League of Jackson, Mississippi, recently held the 12th annual Mistletoe Marketplace Baptist Luncheon and Style Show. More than five hundred guests from across the state heard the story of entertainment reporter and television personality Giuliana Rancic’s battle with breast cancer and infertility, and how the journey strengthened hers and her husband’s faith.

In honor of Giuliana’s eighth year of being cancer free, and in acknowledgment of Mississippi’s poor mammogram screening rate, MBMC made a donation to fund for the girls in the amount equivalent to 25 screening mammograms. The Baptist Health Foundation’s fund for the girls helps uninsured or underinsured Mississippians receive mammograms and follow-up care as needed.
