The Gala guests listened to a testimonial by breast cancer survivor Amy Waltner (pictured at left). She shared her personal journey and experience with breast cancer, including that her initial mammogram was done at Freeman Regional Health Services.
"Mary Manson then referred me to Yankton, where I received a digital mammogram, and the news that I had breast cancer. The hardest thing I had to do was tell my family," she said.
Amy kept a daily journal in which she documented her experiences, and shared some of what she had written with the gala guests. Amy encouraged all to get a mammogram. "It can save your life."
