Ginni Baker, 39, lost both her mother, Anne Seippel at age 59, and her sister Patti Ezzell at age 29 to breast cancer. In honor of her mother and sister, Baker, of Winston-Salem, has sewn 150 pink face masks for patients receiving mammograms at the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
“This is such an unusual time for everyone especially for patients coming into a health-care facility for routine appointments,” said Kelly Cronin, M.D., assistant professor of breast radiology and medical director of breast imaging at Wake Forest Baptist. “To keep our patients and staff safe, everyone who enters into our clinic is asked to wear a mask. When our patients receive a pink mask Ginni has made, you can see many of their faces light up. Ginni’s thoughtfulness has brought some needed light to our patients and we are so grateful for that.”
