The Elaine M. Junca Women’s Imaging Centre was out in force at the 2012 Susan G Komen Race for the Cure this past Saturday. Their signature purple team shirts could be seen in every corner of Girard Park. Elaine’s Queens of Hope won this year’s award for Largest Team – Corporate Division with 102 team members helping raise funds to find a cure for breast cancer; which claimed the life of the Centre’s namesake. With five out of six parishes in Acadiana having a higher mortality rate that then national average, the Elaine M. Junca Women’s Imaging Centre is dedicated to educating the women of Acadiana about the risks and the importance of being screened for breast cancer.
