Let’s Get Pink Together!

“When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better. ” - Maya Angelou

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an opportunity for breast cancer survivors and loved ones to celebrate friendship and family. It’s a month for promoting breast cancer awareness and the importance of research, early detection, and prevention. It’s also a critical month to galvanize communities around the world—bringing the disease front and center to our collective attention.

But for far too many people, Breast Cancer Awareness Month is also a painful reminder of the more than 42,000 U.S. women and men we will lose—almost entirely to metastatic disease—each year. It’s a call to action to fund more research to save lives and improve outcomes.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month provides us with the opportunity to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of breast cancer through education on symptoms and treatment. It is also an opportunity to remind women to be ‘breast aware’ for earlier detection.  It is my hope that greater knowledge will lead to earlier detection of breast cancer, which is associated with higher long-term survival rates, and that money raised for breast cancer will produce a reliable, permanent cure.

A pink ribbon is a symbol of breast cancer awareness. It may be worn to honor those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The pink ribbon is associated with individual generosity, faith in scientific progress, and a “can-do” attitude. It encourages us to focus on the emotionally appealing ultimate vision of a cure for breast cancer, rather than on the fraught path between current knowledge and any future cures.

Join us as we “Paint the City Pink” at our Wednesday, October 18, 2023 Commission Meeting at 7:00 pm. We will honor our breast cancer survivors by wearing pink to along with providing pink inspired desserts.
