Tickets are on sale for Alice in Wonderland," Kaweah Delta Breast Center's 5th annual Pink Tea Party, scheduled for the Visalia Convention Center on Sunday, October 23, beginning at 1 p.m.

The event's keynote speaker will be speaker, physician, author and breast cancer survivor Dr. Sheri Phillips Prentiss, national spokesperson for Susan G. Komen 3-Day, and author of When Everything Changed: My Journey from Physician to Patient.

Prentiss is a board-certified occupational and environmental medicine physician who designed a compression arm sleeve to combat lymphedema, a swelling in an arm or leg caused by a lymphatic system blockage most commonly caused by lymph node removal or damage due to cancer treatment.

"I'm excited to be a part of this event that is bringing awareness to breast cancer and celebrating women for the hope, strength and courage they've shown in facing cancer," said Prentiss.

The event will also include music, opportunity drawings, a photo booth and a walk of hope rose ceremony honoring those whose lives have been touched by breast cancer. Roses will be sold for $5 and proceeds from the sale will go to the Lost Girls Fund created by the Lost Girls Motorcycle Club.

If a low-income woman is in need of a mammogram and cannot pay for it, the fund pays for the mammogram at the Kaweah Delta Breast Center. For more information about the Breast Center and its services, call (559) 624-3209 or visit http://www.kaweahdelta.org.
