Pink Platoon is calling up breast cancer survivors in southwest Kansas for a free health and wellness “boot camp” from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 7 in classroom B at St. Catherine Hospital, 401 E. Spruce St. There is no cost to attend, and each survivor is encouraged to bring a friend.

Pink Platoon was developed in partnership with the hospital, Susan G. Komen Kansas and Midwest Cancer Alliance, the outreach division of The University of Kansas Cancer Center. The “boot camp” will include lunch plus nutrition and exercise tips, updates on common aftereffects of treatment and workshops on “Chemobrain,” yoga, meditation, sexuality, genetics and more.

To “enlist” for the Pink Platoon “boot camp” and get more information, call Lisa at (620) 272-2380 or email
