In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, Uvalde Memorial Hospital is hosting a Women’s Health Expo to take place on Tuesday, October 9th at the Ssgt. Willie de Leon Civic Center from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. Our focus is not only on breast cancer awareness but overall women’s health and encouraging women to take an active approach to their healthcare.

  • Rebekah Gregory is a wife and mother whose life was forever changed due to the bombings at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. This act of terrorism may have claimed her leg, but it could not claim her spirit. Since then, Rebekah has used her platform in a huge way by traveling all over the country speaking out against evil, and encouraging people to turn their obstacles into opportunities. In 2017, Rebekah had her first book "Taking My Life Back" published. Shortly after, she launched Rebekah's Angels Foundation, which she and her husband created to aid in the treatment of childhood PTSD. Rebekah and her college sweetheart-turned-husband Chris, live in Houston TX with their two beautiful children, Ryleigh and Noah, their dog Bear, and their talking parrot, Captain Jack Sparrow.
