NEWPORT, AR (KAIT) – The nation recognizes October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so a local hospital is doing its part to honor people who have beat the disease.

Harris Hospital will host a breast cancer survivor dinner in Newport this Thursday at 6 p.m.

The dinner is free to anyone who has overcome the disease, plus one guest.

Rebecca Pearrow, the hospital's director of marketing, says the event should send out a message of hope.

"We have a special featured guest that is a breast cancer," Pearrow said. "Her journey actually began right here in the hospital with her diagnosis, and she has a really uplifting message of recovery and how she came through her treatment.

"The more attention that we bring to breast cancer," she added, "the more exposure that we get to it, we think that it's going to help continue in the fight to reach a cure."

The hospital currently has 35 people registered to attend the survivor's dinner, though it has room for 15 more.

To reserve a seat, call 870-512-3081.
