In addition, the Governor's Mansion will be lit in pink October 8-15 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

"Usually it is one out of eight women that end up with breast cancer", said West Tennessee Imaging Center Mammography Unit Coordinator Alicia Hamilton. It comes as no surprise then that Chevy and GM are continuing to raise awareness for breast cancer, for the eighth year in a row. "We trust that our contributions have a part in helping both expanding awareness, and helping towards early detection". Funds raised by the Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative are granted into various Wyoming breast cancer programs and are also used to fund a statewide voucher program through the Wyoming Cancer Resource Services.

"I am in charge of planning sisterhood events throughout the week as well as helping the philanthropy chair with planning specific events that we either hold at our lodge or we reach out to local restaurants", she said. Finally, the Pink Ribbon team is organizing a walk in pink for the fight against breast cancer, on 17 February, with Monaco Run.

After skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer among US women, according to the American Cancer Society.

The campaign's tagline "Your Health is Precious, Get Screened" is a message from the children to their mothers, urging them to get screened for breast cancer. A mammogram helped detect the cancer before it spread. "So we're proud to promote awareness by lighting up the Indian River Inlet Bridge and two of our toll plazas in pink this year to promote awareness and let women, as well as men, know to get checked", Lilly said. With traditional 2D digital mammography, the brightness level and image contrast can be adjusted by the radiologist on the monitor to get a better view of different areas of breast tissue. For those women considered at high risk for breast cancer, it's important to learn about early testing, possibly beginning in one's 30s. She had gone through this surgery right before Christmas time but she still held Christmas Eve with our entire family at her house, showing her incredible strength. I also had great support from doctors and nurses, many of which continue to provide me with great care.
