FWC took center stage at Women’s Cancer Awareness Night with the Chicago Sky on August 20th

It was an incredible night at the Chicago Sky game on August 20th, as the Foundation for Women’s Cancer (FWC) came together with UChicago Medicine to raise awareness for women’s cancer! The FWC took center stage, spreading the message and engaging with the community in impactful ways.

Before the game kicked off, SGO Members S. Diane Yamada, MD and Jeffrey Hines, MD along with Sarah P. Shubeck, MD, MS, met with teenagers from Tween Esteem, Gyrls in the Hood, and TA98. This session was more than just a discussion – it was a platform to enhance awareness about gynecologic cancer and provide answers to their questions, fostering knowledge and empowerment.

During the game, the FWC presence was unmistakable from taking over the jumbotron, to a special Move4Her moment of movement, to distributing swag and brochures in the concourse, all helping to amplify the message.

At halftime, the spotlight shifted to Drs. Yamada and Hines, again as they took to the floor to share invaluable insights into the importance of women’s cancer awareness and the work that FWC does. Their words resonated with the audience, shedding light on the significance of our mission and the strides we’re making in the fight against eradicating gynecologic cancers.
