On average, every day in Wyoming, one person is diagnosed with breast cancer. One day, that person was Lisa Wagner. Lisa is the wife of Dr. Bert Wagner, one of our wonderful providers at Cheyenne OBGYN. Dr. Wagner has served gynecology patients in southeast Wyoming for almost 30 years, and thus has helped many women through their breast cancer journeys, including Lisa.
This year, Dr. and Lisa Wagner are serving as honorary chairs for the 2020 Pink Ribbon Run and Fun. This race is put on by the Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative as a fundraiser to support Wyoming residents with breast cancer.
The Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative (WBCI) works to support breast cancer programs within Wyoming, focusing on breast health education. The initiative also assists financially with breast cancer screenings, survivor services, and patient navigation. Since its establishment in 2016, WBCI has granted over $350,000 into projects and breast cancer screening and early detection programs available all across Wyoming.
The WBCI uses several events throughout the year to both raise awareness as well as meet their financial goals for supporting breast cancer programs. One of these is the Wyoming Pink Ribbon Run & Fun. While WBCI typically hosts a run that is held outdoors with teams all decked out in matching tees, COVID-19 has changed the plan just a little bit this year. The run has gone virtual!
Our team at Cheyenne OBGYN will be participating in the Run and Fun this year – we’ve named our team ‘Simply the Breast’. We’d love for you to join us and support the Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative! Visit wyomingbreastcancer.org for more information.
