October 14, 2016 — "Celebrating Champions!"

It was a day of celebrating champions — and a sell-out crowd helped Francine's Friends do just that! Nearly 700 women (and men) attended this year's annual "Lunch with Friends" to help raise record funds — which will be used to provide screening mammography on the Francine's Friends Mobile Mammography coach for women in northeast Indiana.

Along with this year’s breast cancer survivors and the Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) staff from the coach, our "friends" helped us celebrate and share a “passion for fashion” thanks to Jophiel, Carson’s, Susan’s, The Find, Tangles, and Classic Image Salon and Spa. William C. Petty, M.D.,  Medical Director, Breast Diagnostic Center and TJ Krasun, Senior Manager, Hospital Systems Lakeshore Division, American Cancer Society, Inc., used a lively debate format to entertain and inform the audience with  “Controversies in Screening Guidelines”.  Francine's Friends Table Captains, Bosom Buddies, and community partners were also acknowledged and celebrated.

This year's event sponsors included Presenting Sponsor PHP, luncheon sponsors Kroger, Radiation Onocology Associations, Emley Design Group, Glo Magazine, Vera Bradley, Medical Oncology and Hematology, Steel Dynamics, Inc., OmniSource, Do it Best Corp., Punch, Briner Building, Inc., MedProGroup, Shaffer Multimedia, and a new champion-level sponsor — Brigadoon Fitness.
