"Many of us have a family member or know of someone who has been touched by breast cancer. Scott and I, through your help, wish to find a cure and, in the meantime, help those and their families who are in need," Dr. Evans said. "Join us for a day that we can celebrate the survivors and remember the ones we lost, like my beloved mother, Nadine."
