Last January 27, the team at Memorial Plastic Surgery participated at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure – Houston. Led by Dr. Patrick Hsu and Dr. Kendall Roehl, the team was joined by friends and patients who spent the morning racing for a good cause.
Participants gathered before dawn to register at Memorial Plastic Surgery’s booth. Dr. Hsu and Dr. Roehl, together with the Memorial Plastic Surgery team, took the opportunity to catch up with guests.
Following a heartwarming rendition of “Amazing Grace”, Gold Medal soccer player, Carli Lloyd, gave a brief and inspiring speech to everyone in attendance.
For Dr. Kendall Roehl, the Race for The Cure was an exhilarating experience. “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be back for this year’s race. To see everyone come out this morning and show their support to all the women who have been affected by this vicious disease is just overwhelming.”
The event was the second time the Memorial Plastic Surgery team attended the Houston Race for the Cure.
“Coming back for a second year in a row is just amazing”, shares Dr. Patrick Hsu. “Each year brings out more and more people to support breast cancer, so the word is definitely out there. What makes today so amazing is that you can feel the hope and excitement in the air. Through this support, we’re all a step closer to reaching a cure.”
What is Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure?
Held every year, the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is the largest fundraising event for breast cancer in the United States. The event promotes the education of breast cancer while celebrating survivors and paying tribute to women who have lost their lives. The race was originally scheduled for October, however, due to the circumstances surrounding Hurricane Harvey, it was rescheduled to the following January.
