With Exemestane: Breast Cancer Survivors 'Shake It Off'

With exemestane: breast cancer survivors 'Shake It Off'

As of Tuesday afternoon, Infirmary Health's video was in first place in the Pink Glove Dance competition for breast cancer awareness.

Infirmary Health is the only hospital in Alabama to compete in a national competition to win $15,000, but they need more votes before the midnight Wednesday deadline to secure a win. As of Tuesday afternoon, Infirmary Health was in first place, with Baptist Health Paducah in Kentucky following close behind.

In the joy-filled, minute-and-a-half-long video, more than 1,000 breast cancer survivors dance along with Infirmary Health doctors, nurses and other staff members to Taylor Swift's pop hit "Shake It Off." Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson and other community leaders make an appearance, as do the Poarch Creek Indians and the Excelsior Band. Participants wear pink exam gloves for breast cancer awareness.

Now in its fifth year, the Medline Pink Glove Dance Video competition is sponsored by Medline Industries Inc., a global manufacturer and distributor of products for the health care industry. Voting began on Sept. 9, and winners will be announced on Oct. 1.

Infirmary Health's video portrays breast cancer patients as celebrities, sporting pink feather boas, tutus and wigs. "Our video represents their journey -- entering the hospital, receiving a diagnosis, undergoing treatment to ringing the bell and entering remission," reads the text beneath the video. "As (the patients) leave the hospital, they throw back shakers to those that have inspired, danced and cheered (them) on along the way. This symbolizes them shaking off every step of their fight against cancer."

If Infirmary Health wins first place in the large bed category, the hospital will donate the $15,000 prize to the American Cancer Society Mid-South Division.

The donation "will help us reach more breast cancer patients through programs such as Look Good Feel Better, which teaches beauty techniques to patients who are currently undergoing cancer treatment," said Leigh Davis, senior director of hospital systems for the American Cancer Society. "Funds will also help launch, a new online program similar to CaringBridge, in our area. Additionally, we can provide new wigs to female breast cancer patients and fund Road to Recovery, a free transportation program for patients taking them to and from treatment."

To vote, visit Search for Infirmary Health in the large bed category. You can vote from every email address you have (five email addresses equal five votes). The first time you vote, you must enter your email address, then log in to your email account to confirm. This step is only required once.
