CHI St. Joseph Health

The most recognized male figure skating star in the world, Scott Hamilton has won 70 titles, awards and honors including an Emmy Award nomination, induction into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame and a privileged member of the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame.

In 1984, Scott captured the attention of the world with his Olympic Gold medal performances in Sarajevo and since has shared his love and enthusiasm for the sport as an analyst/commentator, performer, producer and best-selling author (Landing It, 1999; The Great Eight, 2009). He further inspires others as a speaker, humanitarian, and as a cancer and pituitary brain tumor survivor.

After losing his mother to breast cancer and then becoming a four-time cancer survivor himself (testicular and brain), Scott turned activist, launching the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship). He founded several education and survivorship programs including Chemocare.com and the 4th Angel Mentoring program. Events such as Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer and An Evening with Scott Hamilton & Friends galas fund research into treatments that treat the cancer and spare the patient.

He is also the founder of the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy at Ford Ice Center in Antioch, TN, where he may frequently be found coaching Learn to Skate students and sharing his love of skating.

Welcome to Surviving & Thriving 2019!

2019 marks the 17th Anniversary of Surviving & Thriving hosted by Pink Alliance, and we are very excited to invite you to join us as we welcome Olympic Gold
Medal Skating Star Scott Hamilton to Bryan/College Station for our annual celebration of Surviving and Thriving on Thursday, September 26!   Surviving & Thriving
is a hallmark community event which captures the attention of business sponsors and over 700 attendees annually. This event sells-out quickly, so please make plans
to join us by confirming your sponsorship and making your luncheon reservation now.   

MORE THAN $866,000 RAISED since 2002

Over the past 16 years, this community luncheon has raised more than $866,000 to support local breast health initiatives, further cancer awareness, and
serve breast cancer patients through low-cost mammograms and other financial support.

ALL FUNDS REMAIN IN THE BRAZOS VALLEY

Surviving & Thriving Luncheon is hosted by Pink Alliance, a local nonprofit organization, and the Brazos Valley’s advocate for breast health and cancer support.
Alliance board members have joined a group of dedicated community volunteers in hosting this annual luncheon. All funds raised from this luncheon remain in the Brazos Valley to serve and support local breast cancer patients and advance breast health and cancer awareness efforts through Pink Alliance.

In 2016, Pink Alliance launched its Pink Alliance Grant Program to provide funding for important breast health and cancer initiatives in the Brazos Valley.  During the
first two years, Pink Alliance has distributed over $223,000 in grants, providing direct support for local patients and countless others indirectly.  In 2017, grant funding provided 547 mammograms, 13 ultrasounds, and 2 biopsies.   During 2018, Pink Alliance awarded $100,000 in grants to 6 organizations.   In addition to its grant funding, 98 low-income patients received medical assistance totaling over $90,777.21 in 2018. 

During 2018, more than 434 hours were registered by individuals attending Pink Alliance Support Group Meetings which meet twice a month. 

BENEFITING BREAST CANCER PATIENTS

As the community’s premiere women’s health awareness event, Surviving & Thriving continues to touch the lives of breast cancer patients, survivors and women.  
In so doing, the committee remains focused on its initial goal – to provide resources and support to local breast cancer patients and recognize breast cancer survivors. If you are undergoing cancer treatments or know someone who could benefit from services provided by Pink Alliance, please contact us.

A special thanks to the countless medical professionals and business sponsors who continue to support and advocate for this important women’s health issue.

 

Thank you for joining us as we celebrate another year of

“Surviving & Thriving."
