A story I’ve done on how the Rev. Kathleen Baskin-Ball and Suncreek United Methodist Church in Allen are dealing with her cancer is scheduled to run in tomorrow’s Dallas Morning News.

Meanwhile, another prominent female Methodist pastor in the Dallas area – Sheron C. Patterson – is speaking out about her breast cancer. She’ll be part of the Body and Soul Women’s Health Event tomorrow at Methodist Charlton Medical Center, 3500 W. Wheatland Rd., Dallas. The event goes from 9 a.m. to noon, and she’s to speak at 11:15 a.m.

Dr. Patterson is senior pastor at Highland Hills UMC in Dallas, and she was the first black woman ordained through the North Texas Methodist Conference. She’s also well known from clinics, books and broadcast appearances in which she gives advice on relationships from a Christian perspective.

Dr. Patterson’s cancer was detected during a December mammogram. She expects to have surgery next month.
