Adventist HealthCare to Honor Breast Cancer Survivors at Washington Spirit Soccer Game

Gaithersburg, MD Adventist HealthCare will honor Breast Cancer Survivors during the Washington Spirit’s final home game on Saturday Sept. 28, at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Boyds, Md. Survivors will be honored before the game with a celebration and will help welcome the team onto the field. During halftime, survivors will be recognized and complete a victory lap around the field.

Not only will this be an exciting celebration for our Breast Cancer survivors, but also their caregivers. The staff that are a part of Adventist HealthCare’s comprehensive breast program have very close and personal relationships with the patients.

“When women are first diagnosed with breast cancer, there is a range of emotions, and it is our job to help them find the best treatment options and put their minds at ease every step of the way,” said Sonya Kella, MD, medical director of Women’s Imaging for Adventist HealthCare. “This event gives us and the community a chance to honor them for going through something that changed their lives.”

Adventist HealthCare offers a comprehensive breast program that covers all aspects of breast health from early detection to diagnosis and treatment, then recovery. Our program holds accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) and is a designated Breast Center of Excellence.

Adventist HealthCare offers a full range of health and wellness services to the community including acute hospital care, rehabilitation, mental and behavioral health services, home care, health education, a physician network and wellness services for businesses. Based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, Adventist HealthCare is one of the largest employers in Maryland, with approximately 5,500 employees. Our mission is to extend God’s care through the ministry of physical, mental and spiritual healing.
