Date:9/20/2013

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) September 20, 2013

Florida Hospital Carrollwood is helping to organize the Tampa area’s first Pink Army troops who will go to the front lines in the fight against breast cancer, a formidable foe. Florida Hospital Carrollwood’s Pink Army is the first offense against breast cancer and the hospital wants to enlist you in the battle.

All breast cancer survivors, patients, friends, family and the community are encouraged to become a soldier in Florida Hospital Carrollwood’s Pink Army. The Pink Army Campaign runs through November 30, 2013. Soldiers can enlist at http://www.jointhepinkarmy.com. Upon enlisting in the Pink Army, members receive army dog tags that will be used to secure rewards and benefits. Soldiers have the opportunity to move up in the ranks through different missions, such as enlisting additional soldiers, volunteering, and by hosting and attending Pink Army events.

To date, Florida Hospital Carrollwood’s Pink Army soldiers can use their dog tags for discounts and/or promotions at: Carmel Café & Wine Bar(Carrollwood Village), A Clinical Massage and Therapy Center, Gwen Hanner Counseling and Hypnotherapy, Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza (November), Forever Beautiful Salon, Jai Dee Yoga, Bari Ruck, LMT. Supporting vendors are being added on a daily basis.

This year, it is estimated that 232,340 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among women in the United States according to the American Cancer Society. Approximately, one in eight women have a chance of developing invasive breast cancer during her lifetime and it’s the second leading cause of cancer death in women.

“Pink Army is an effective and enjoyable way to spread the word throughout our community about the importance of prevention, screening and early detection of breast cancer,” says noted Breast , General and Vascular Surgeon Sharad Patel, MD. “Early diagnoses of breast cancer can mean the difference between life and death. Early and accurate diagnoses can mean faster time to treatment and cure.”

Florida Hospital Carrollwood offers comprehensive breast imaging services, including mammography. The Hospital’s board-certified radiologists are trained in breast imaging and provide the fastest, most accurate diagnoses possible so appropriate treatment can begin if and when needed.
