2016 Paint The Town Pink Kickoff
Sep 27, 2016
The 2016 Paint The Town Pink campaign kicked off Monday, Sept. 26, with the annual pinking of the Forsyth Park fountain. The day also included a trolley ride for breast cancer survivors to help spread awareness to folks in downtown Savannah.
St. Joseph's/Candler and the Savannah Morning News team up every year to raise awareness of breast cancer treatments, research, education and support. Money is also raised for the mammography fund, which provides mammograms to the uninsured or underinsured.
Throughout October, Paint The Town Pink initiatives will continue to raise awareness about this deadly form of cancer.
Early prevention is key to surviving breast cancer. St. Joseph's/Candler recommends annual mammograms for women over the age of 40. Mammography has been proven to save lives by catching breast cancer early. To schedule a 3D mammogram, call 912-819-PINK.
