Thinking pink on the Peninsula

Posted: October 11, 2012 - 9:18am

Pink is becoming the color of October both nationally and on the Kenai Peninsula. It’s the color of awareness that by just being female women are at risk for breast cancer and that early detection remains the best method of saving lives. Pink shows up everywhere, in newspaper ads, on television and even on hockey rinks. The messages are clear that communities are united to defeat this disease and offer a strong quality of life for those undergoing treatment. The Kenai Peninsula is no exception.

Central Peninsula Hospital with the help and support of the Pink Ribbon Rally is sponsoring a Pamper Me Pink Mammography Party Oct 19th from 5-8pm. The Pink Ribbon Rally Ladies give of themselves and their resources to raise funds to support this event. Their efforts help cover costs of mammograms throughout the year for women needing assistance because early screening is imperative for diagnosis and treatment. It saved me and I will be forever grateful to the hospital and medical community for the care and support I received.

The American Cancer Society was part of that support as well through the Reach to Recovery program consisting of breast cancer survivors reaching out to newly diagnosed women. Please call me if you’d like more information on that program.

So I’m all about pink and it makes me both happy and proud to see it displayed around town knowing that it depicts a genuine concern for our families and neighbors.
