Candid Conversations


Spectrum Health Cancer Center and Betty Ford Breast Care Services present Candid Conversations

Free Community Breast Cancer Awareness Event 

First Lady Betty Ford’s openness about her breast cancer fostered public discussion. Join us to hear from Betty’s daughter and breast cancer advocate, Susan Ford Bales. Emmy Rickert will share her story which begins with a breast cancer diagnosis at age 24, one week after losing her aunt to the disease, and chronicles her journey to becoming a mother now raising two young children. Community health experts will also share information on breast cancer genetics, risks and survivorship.

Come join us for a fun, educational breast cancer awareness event and bring a friend! Follow along on social media using the hashtag: #candidconversations.
