Available locally to breast cancer patients, including its Reach to Recovery one-on-one support program, and special gift items like bras and prosthesis. In addition, free wigs, lodging, transportation, personal health managers, and 24/7 access to the National Cancer Information Center (1-800-227-2345) are programs available to all cancer patients. South Texas Health System is asking the community for its support through online votes this Oct. 12 through Nov. 2, 2012 as it attempts to win first place in the national Pink Glove Dance international dance phenomenon! The grand prize — a $10,000 donation — will be awarded to the charity of our choice, the local chapter of the American Cancer Society, if South Texas Health System wins. The donation will help support the ACS’s numerous free patient services.

"It is a great honor to have been chosen by South Texas Health System as their local charity of choice for the Pink Glove Dance competition,” said Heather Marks, American Cancer Society Manager of Income Development. “We are so proud of the awareness that their video spreads and the beautiful story it tells!"

This is the second year South Texas Health System has participated in the creative competition, in which entrants submit a music video featuring pink gloves. The contest is sponsored by Medline Industries. Last year, South Texas Health System ranked 15th place out of 139 entries, receiving more than 6,800 votes. This year’s winning video will be the one that receives the most votes through Facebook on www.pinkglovedance.com during the voting period of Oct. 12 through Nov. 2. Voters can only vote once per entry.

To top what the Valley’s largest hospital system did last year, South Texas Health System’s Pink Glove Dance organizers decided to do more than “just dance.”

“We wanted to tell a story this year. Our video is all about overcoming fear, and summoning the courage to take the first step,” said Cari Lambrecht, the video’s director. “In our video, you will see that our lead character has rescheduled her mammogram week after week until she discovers a lump. She initially thinks the worst, but in her dreams, she is guided by three breast cancer survivors through the possible outcomes of chemotherapy, a mastectomy, or a simple diagnostic test. Our dreamer discovers an entire community that encourages her to get her mammogram. It’s not just the hospital. It’s her family, her friends, those that have lost the battle or survived the battle.”

“We strongly believe the best prevention is early detection,” Lambrecht said. “Once our dreamer wakes, she is empowered with the knowledge of all the possibilities and goes in for her mammogram. Whatever the outcome of the test, the community celebrates her taking the first step. She is an inspiration to other women too scared to get their mammograms, and she sets an example for future generations of women to take charge of their health.”

South Texas Health System’s video featured JoAnne Perez Pena, organizer of Edinburg’s Love Your Chas Chas 5K Run, Walk and Stroll as the lead actress. Pena, who lost both her mother and sister to breast cancer, gladly took on the role, volunteering her time so that women in the Rio Grande Valley could see that no matter what the outcome of the test, getting a mammogram is the first step. South Texas Health System will feature its Pink Glove Dance entry at the “Cha Cha Run” on Oct. 13 and provide 10 free mammograms to be raffled off to attendees.

The video, danced to the tune of Katy Perry’s “Part of Me,” also features three breast cancer survivors: Blanca Chavez, Sherry Arambula, and JoAnn Yzaguirre. Cheerleaders and dance team members from McAllen High School and Nikki Rowe High School volunteered their time to support the cause, too. South Texas Health System also thanks Hermes Music for providing technical support during the filming of the dance. More than 500 people volunteered their time to make South Texas Health System’s Pink Glove Dance entry a success.

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
