The free event is sponsored by NMMC’s Spirit of Women and made possible by grants from Komen North Mississippi Race for the Cure®. The luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Summit Center, 852 N. Gloster St.
Guest speaker will be Lillie D. Shockney, a registered nurse who has served as administrative director of the Johns Hopkins Breast Center in Baltimore, Md., since 1997. A two-time breast cancer survivor, Shockney has worked tirelessly to improve the care of breast cancer patients around the world.

She is also certified as a breast imaging and breast cancer patient navigator.
Shockney has written 13 books and more than 250 articles on breast cancer. She serves on the medical advisory board of several national breast cancer organizations and is the co-founder and vice president of a national non-profit organization called Mothers Supporting Daughters with Breast Cancer.
She is also editor-in-chief of a peer-reviewed medicine journal called Journal of Oncology Navigation and Survivorship. She is the consultant for breast cancer for national ABC News and Good Morning America, is consulted regularly by the Today Show and CNN, and serves as “Ask an Expert” for several breast cancer Web sites, including Yahoo.com and the Johns Hopkins Breast Center, among many others.
All Pink Dress Luncheon participants are encouraged to wear their favorite pink attire for the Pink Dress Luncheon, and a prize will be awarded for the “Prettiest in Pink.” Breast cancer survivors will be recognized. Door prizes will be awarded, and each participant will receive a free gift.
