“Stonewall Baptist Church has been strongly committed to breast cancer awareness and outreach,” says church member Catherine Wright. “In addition to the Pink Sunday event, the church has formed the C. Wright Pink Ribbon Foundation in my namesake to financially assist area patients as they go through treatment.” Wright is a 5 year breast cancer survivor and Board Member of Sisters Network Shreveport. A breakfast symposium will be held at Stonewall on Saturday, October 27th in the Family Life Center at 10:00a.m.
