Today was the perfect day for pink. More than sixty women and men gathered at the grand opening of the Comprehensive Breast Center to see the new addition, but also to celebrate hope.

The new Center will be a one-stop-shop.

"This is a big day for the community because there's nothing like this in town," said Bud Wethington the CEO of Capital Regional Medical Center.

And for one breast cancer survivor, an all inclusive center would have helped. Kathy Brooks was pregnant when she found a lump in her breast, and she was only thirty-two years old...

Even though Kathy is a nurse she could have used some help. "I did flounder a bit and if you have a place you can go and someone can kind of walk you through the steps it's so helpful," she said.

The Center is equipped with the latest technology to help give patients answers as soon as possible.

Kathy said, "When you have a lump or have a bad mammogram you just want to know whether or not it's cancer."

One of the physicians from the new facility, Dr. Kathy Langston brought her children on stage and told the crowd, this is her reason for doing her job. She works to help children keep their mothers and fathers.

With now more than eighty-five percent of breast cancer patients beating the cancer, there's a lot of hope to go around.

For more information on the Comprehensive Breast Center visit or to register for a free mammogram call 1-888-702-2152. Although there is a limited number, the free mammograms will be available for the month of October.
