UMC’s Pink Glove Dance Hopes to Make a Difference for El Paso area Breast Cancer Patients
A team of University Medical Center employees have joined the fight against breast cancer by wearing pink exam gloves and dancing.
The community-owned hospital is taking part in a national breast cancer prevention campaign and needs your help to win a $10,000 donation to benefit Sobreviviendo el Cancer de Seno (Surviving Breast Cancer) Infusion Center.
The annual Medline Pink Glove Dance Video Competition urges healthcare professionals, patients and communities to submit a music video featuring breast cancer survivors, medical staff, physicians and others dancing. The dancers wear pink gloves in support of breast cancer survivors and the hope of a cure.
UMC’s dance video submission features hospital staff and volunteers as well as members of the El Paso police and fire department dancing to the Meghan Trainor song “Better When I’m Dancin’”
“Our video is a message of hope, encouragement and unity that begins moments after our patient is first told she will join with many thousands of women every year diagnosed with breast cancer,” reads the video description. “Through messages of support, hope, love, and cheers toward victory, our cancer survivors show the world, their families and themselves that they can do it, that they can win, feel better and dance with the challenges ahead.”
