As part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and MedWest Health System’s annual Fall Fight campaign against breast cancer, the women’s imaging centers of MedWest-Harris and MedWest-Haywood are hosting receptions on Oct. 5 to dedicate Trees of Hope to honor and remember breast cancer patients. 

MedWest-Haywood’s tree will be located in the women’s center on the second floor of the new Outpatient Care Center at 581 Leroy George Dr. in Clyde, between the MedWest Health and Fitness Center and the hospital. At 1 p.m., a small dedication reception will take place. Light refreshments will be served. 

MedWest-Harris’ dedication reception will take place at noon at the women’s imaging center, on the first floor of Harris Medical Park at 98 Doctors Dr. in Sylva.

Both trees will remain in place throughout October, and anyone is all welcome to place cards on the trees.
