Southern Tennessee Regional Health System-Winchester announces its 5th annual Breast Cancer Awareness event, Cheers for the Girls, to be held on October 6, 2022. Local breast cancer survivor, Jonanne Hammer, will be the guest speaker and she will share her inspiring testimony with attendees. The event will be held at the Honeysuckle at Twin Creeks and will feature breakfast for attendees and door prizes.

Breast cancer survivor medallions, along with Cheers for the Girls t-shirts, are available to purchase at Treasures located at 1307 Dinah Shore Blvd. in Winchester. The short-sleeved t-shirts are $20 and the long-sleeved t-shirts and medallions are each $25. The proceeds from these shirts and medallions benefit the Multi-County Cancer Support Network.
