Lite It Up Pink North Alabama | Events
This October breast cancer awareness month is taking on a whole new meaning to me. A good friend, someone I've known since I was a child, is undergoing a double mastectomy as I type. She's young, in her mid-30's, further proof breast cancer doesn't play favorites.
She's the second friend I've watched battle breast cancer in the past five years.
In college I watched my friend and 5 p.m anchor, Liz, fight a very public battle. Little did I know, years later I'd watch her council hundreds of women fighting the same fight.
By purchasing a pink bulb, you are helping raise money for equipment needed to detect breast cancer.
But when you Lite It Up Pink, you are doing more than raising money. You are showing support to the women fighting breast cancer. You are helping remember those who lost the battle.
Let's wash North Alabama in pink and show these women, past and present, that we are fighting along with them. Click here to find out where to buy your pink bulb.
And don't forget to sign up for the annual Liz Hurley Ribbon Run. I hope to see you in downtown Huntsville on October 20th. I'll be the one in pink.
