Breast cancer event named for late nurse

An annual breakfast to raise money for breast-cancer awareness has been renamed the Isabel Law Breast Cancer Breakfast.

This year’s event will be from 6 to 9 a.m. Oct. 3. People can come by the parking lot at City Hall, 1737 Main St., for “a hot, Southern-style breakfast.” They can eat in or take a plate to go. Tickets are $7.

Since 2000, when the event started, it has been known as Mayor Bob’s Annual Breast Cancer Breakfast. It has been renamed in honor of Law, a breast nurse at Palmetto Health Baptist, who died Sept. 14.

Proceeds will buy special clothing for women who’ve had mastectomies.
