Hope's Chest raises breast cancer awareness with humor


About a hundred people learned about breast cancer awareness Thursday night in a humorous way.

They had dinner and watched a play at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Weston.

Hope's Chest was sponsored by the Marshfield Clinic.

It's an effort to raise awareness about breast cancer.  The show featured six different skits talking about the illness and how to prevent it.

Organizers say the show was completely sold out.

"Breast cancer is something that touches a lot of people, touches families,  touches friends and relatives, it's out there it can be devastating but what we wanted to do it to send the message that there is also a lot of hope," said Janel Thoune, Marshfield Clinic Spokesman.

Newsline 9 was a sponsor of the event.
