The award-winning inventor of The SHOWER SHIRT®, the first and only patented water-resistant garment to protect mastectomy/chest surgery patients while showering, will speak at Baptist Health Paducah’s annual breast cancer awareness luncheon.
The free event, co-sponsored with the Kentucky Cancer Program, will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, in the Myre River Room of the Carson Center. Seating is limited, so reservations are required by phoning 270.442.1310 or emailing email@example.com.
Lisa F. Crites, a southeast Missouri native and a Murray State University graduate, invented The SHOWER SHIRT® following a double mastectomy in 2009. Crites, who lives in Cocoa Beach, Fla., is a former broadcast journalist and current Corporate Healthcare Consultant and Media Strategist.
“I’m thrilled to be speaking at Baptist Health’s Pink Passion luncheon event this month,” Crites said. “Being diagnosed with breast cancer at 41, I’m obviously a huge advocate for breast cancer education and awareness. Knowledge is power and these types of events help empower women with the clinical knowledge needed for prevention. I’ve presented at breast cancer events around the world, but am extremely excited to travel back to Kentucky, a state where I spent four years in college while at Murray State.”
