Walk Begins

We all walk together, but our event is not a race. Stop whenever you want or need to. You absolutely do not need to complete the entire walk if you are unable. The walk concludes when the final walker crosses the finish line.


The survivor area is a special area for survivors and the caregivers attending with them. We include both survivors and caregivers to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible. You'll find important information about American Cancer Society programs and services geared specifically for you.

American Cancer Society's campaign, Real Men Wear Pink . . .

begins October 1 and runs  through October 31, 2019. Dr. Kelly Ferrell, Board Certified Radiologist at Breast Diagnostic Center, will participate in the 3rd annual Real Men Wear Pink campaign. Visit Dr. Ferrell's RMWP webpage at:  http://main.acsevents.org/goto/drkellyferrell

Two years ago, Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) was approached by American Cancer Society to partake in their new campaign, Real Men Wear Pink. Dr. William C. Petty, Medical Director at BDC proudly accepted the challenge in the Fall of 2017. Dr. Petty and his staff fundraised with energy and passion and wore a generous amount of pink attire during October. The following year, Fall of 2018, Dr. Jay T. Jones picked up the baton from Dr. Petty to fundraise in the 2nd annual Real Men Wear Pink campaign. Since the inception of RMWP, these two BDC radiologists have raised over $10,000 and wore a substantial amount of PINK while united in their fight against breast cancer.

This year, Fall of 2019, Dr. Kelly Ferrell, radiologist at FWRadiology, who specializes in breast imaging, will energetically grab the baton from Dr. Jones and participate in the 3rd annual Real Men Wear Pink campaign. Dr. Ferrell, representing BDC, will be wearing pink every day during the month of October, help educate people about the importance of early screening and fundraise for a great cause. Donations from the 2019 RMWP campaign will again support the American Cancer Society in their efforts to help save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research and patient support. To support Dr. Ferrell in his fundraising efforts you can visit his RMWP webpage at: http://main.acsevents.org/goto/drkellyferrell .   For those in need of assistance, the ACS hotline is 1-800-227-2345 or visit Cancer.org for information.

Breast Diagnostic Center and its staff have been proud supporters of the American Cancer Society and its various campaigns for decades. In 1991, in its infancy, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer was called Summit City 10K run. BDC was an event sponsor at the 1991 campaign and has been an avid annual sponsor since. To date, BDC will be a returning “Water Station” sponsor at the 2019 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign. BDC takes prides in not only providing our patients with excellent care, but also historically giving back to our community. The Breast Diagnostic Center was the first dedicated breast center in Fort Wayne to be accredited by the American College of Radiology. Since 1989, the Center has maintained its accreditation due to the training and experience of the radiologists and technologists. All Breast Diagnostic Center sites are FDA Certified.

See what our Patients are saying

“Everyone at Breast Diagnostic Center, from the receptionist to the radiologist, is professional and caring. I appreciate the fact that the radiologist report is available as soon as the test is completed. When you have had breast cancer, followed by chemotherapy, you don't want to leave without knowing test results.”
