Chino Valley Medical Center Dances for Breast Cancer Awareness

Many of us have been affected by, or know someone who has endured breast cancer. Chino Valley Medical Center has joined Medline's 2015 Pink Glove Dance Contest in an effort to support, promote, and raise awareness for breast cancer. Their team, "Mission Possible Chino", has chosen "Uptown Funk" featuring Bruno Mars, to remind each individual that has been touched by this disease to remember that life is a treasure worth fighting for. The staff spent countless hours practicing and showed their teamwork and support for the cause.

The Medline 2015 Pink Glove Dance Contest is a competition started in 2009 in order to dive into the hard work, creativity, and inspiration of caregivers from all over the country. The participants must create a dance video to a catchy beat to help heighten awareness of breast cancer. The winner will be selected by which dance video receives the most votes and will be given a $5,000 prize to be given to the charity of their choice that supports breast cancer research. Voting began on September 9th and ends on September 23. Voting is open to all and voters are asked to determine the best video based not only on creativity and production quality but also on the effectiveness of raising awareness.

Chino Valley Medical Center wants to thank all who participated in the video and helped raised awareness for breast cancer: Don Lugo High School, the Chino Police Department, Chino Valley Fire, Walnut Elementary, Chino Valley Unified School District, and American Medical Response (AMR). "Personnel from Chino Valley Fire, Chino Police Department, Chino Valley Medical Center, and AMR partner together every day to serve our community," said Tim Shackelford, Fire Chief of the Chino Valley Fire District. "We have worked together to create this outstanding video; it is our hope that it raises awareness about cancer and generates funding for research and treatment." Filming to support this cause lasted for three days. The coordination involved, as well as teamwork, was outstanding. Dr. James Lally, Chief Medical Officer at CVMC, and John Blenkinsopp, Chief Nursing Officer at CVMC also added, "it is inspiring to see the community and the Hospital coming together to support such a great initiative in order to fund the fight against this devastating disease. We applaud the commitment of our staff and the community in putting together such a fun video in hopes to sponsor our charity. Now we need your support: We need your vote!" The winner selected is largely based on votes received so please get social and promote this wonderful cause.
