Friends and Family Celebrate Valley Breast Center In Honor Of Sara Whiting


When Sara Whiting finished treatment for breast cancer at Valley’s Breast Center, she looked forward to celebrating with friends and family. “I was lucky, it was caught early, and I had a fabulous team of doctors,” Sara says. “I completed everything at the end of 2019 and set about planning for a party in 2020. And then COVID-19 happened.”

More than two years later in the spring of 2022, Sara and her family were finally able to host a celebratory “Pink Out” where guests were encouraged to wear pink in honor of Sara’s fight against breast cancer. On the event’s invitation, Sara had decided to include a link to The Valley Hospital Foundation’s website, asking people to consider making a donation to Valley’s Breast Center in honor of the care she had received. “All throughout my treatment, people asked questions and wanted to know about my doctors and what was going on. The care I was getting wasn’t just top of mind for me, but for other people as well. It was amazing.” Sara is thrilled at the response the link received and grateful for her community’s personal and philanthropic support. “This didn’t start as a fundraiser; it really was so organic,” Sara says. “I wanted to do something that would give back to Valley, and I’m delighted that together with my friends and family we could have an even bigger impact.”
