Hundreds of pink-gloved hands pumped the air to “Fight Song” at the 6th Annual Think Pink Tea held Thursday, Oct. 8, at the Alabama Cruise Terminal in downtown Mobile. The event was presented by the Vincent F. Kilborn Charitable Foundation and sponsored by USA Mitchell Cancer Institute and USA Children’s and Women’s Hospital.
“You, our cancer survivors, are the primary motivation for what we do. Today, we celebrate you and look forward to great progress in the treatment and early detection of cancer,” Dr. Michael Finan, director of MCI, told the crowd.
The free event featured a runway fashion show by models who are cancer survivors, friends and family, researchers, nurses and physicians. Near the end of the runway stood three pink candles commemorating Think Pink Tea models who have passed away since last year’s event.
The emcee was Carlisha Hartzog of Hartzog Consulting L.L.C. A special performance of “Fight Song” was presented by the Camille and Charles Carey, grandchildren of Mobile attorney Vincent Kilborn.
The Mitchell Cancer Institute has the only comprehensive Women’s Cancer Program in the region, featuring a specialized medical oncologist and three breast cancer surgeons, and an active clinical trials portfolio. NIH-funded research currently underway at MCI is working to develop new experimental drugs for the treatment of breast cancer.
