Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed will join Dr. Rogsbert Phillips-Reed and thousands of others in the fight against breast cancer at the 8th annual Pink Ribbon Walk. The event is hosted by Sisters….By Choice Inc., which was founded in 1989 by Dr. Rogsbert F. Phillips-Reed, M.D., a renowned Atlanta-based breast surgeon. The proceeds from this event will go to this organization.
Early on, Dr. Phillips-Reed saw the need for programs that would increase public awareness and knowledge of breast cancer as a means to decrease the mortality and suffering from breast cancer.
