Breast Cancer Awareness Month

2018 Breast Cancer Awareness

Each year during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Foundation partners with local community organizations and the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center to help expand the hospital's program of support, diagnosis and treatment for patients battling this devastating disease.
The Breast Cancer Awareness Month committee's efforts include planning fundraising events and community awareness activities in October that help raise funds, awareness and support the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center. This year, we are celebrating the Breast Center's 15th year of Excellence.


Patricia Spellman and Staff members

Meet Patricia Spellman, our 2018 Breast Cancer Awareness Testimonial Speaker. Patricia has enjoyed a successful career as a broadcaster in radio and television marketing, and has a passion for praising others for a job well done. In late 2016, her world stood still when, while recovering from a partial hysterectomy for an ovarian tumor, an abnormality was detected during her routine breast exam, and a biopsy was scheduled.

"In my “pay-it-forward world,” my words of thanks for the care shown to me can never fully express the level of gratitude I will always carry in my heart for the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center and staff," says Patricia. “'All You Need is Love'” is my life’s motto, and love is what they show. What a stellar staff! 'Thank You' doesn’t begin to express my deepest gratitude."
