Why We Wear Pink

Author: Heather Hyatt

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and for the past few years, we've partnered with Breast Cancer Angels – a non-profit organization that provides immediate and temporary assistance to families affected by breast cancer.

To raise awareness of the disease, we asked our team why they choose to wear pink.

"About ten years ago, my mom discovered a lump in one of her breasts. After several blood tests, scans, and appointments, the doctors were certain the growth was benign. They took out the growth and used a harpoon-like instrument to insert a tiny metal ribbon in its place.

The thought of losing my mother to cancer was horrifying. Because of this experience, I talked to my doctor about how to check my own body for abnormal growths. Even though breast cancer mostly affects women, men should check their bodies, too, as this cancer does not discriminate. That's why I wear pink."

"Having experienced my own loss and seeing many of my close friends dealing with loss of loved ones to this disease, I wear pink to honor survivors, those who lost the fight, and to help further progress for those still fighting."
