Posted: Updated:

 

(KYTX) - Dozens of women dressed in pink came out for the ETMC Pink Ribbon Getaway...

At the retreat, cancer survivors were able to mingle with other survivors and ask  a panel of specialist questions about current and future cancer treatments.
   
Survivors say it's important to have events like this putting a spot light on the issue of cancer.

"I think this is really good for us as people to have this period of time to absorb all this information," says Evelyn Cummings, breast cancer survivor. 

 

The women at the retreat, shared stories of survival and took part in laughter yoga.

The retreat was sponsored by the Junior League of Tyler, the  Susan G. Komen Foundation an the ETMC foundation.
