Locals 'Paint the Town Pink' for Breast Cancer Awareness

October 2, 2010

The city is painting the town pink for breast cancer awareness.

Mayor Dave Norris, the Charlottesville Fire Department and other gathered outside City Hall Saturday morning to kick of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Awareness advocates want Charlottesville residents to be more aware of the needs of those who are battling breast cancer.

"We'd like to see our friends our neighbors and our coworkers help people," awareness advocate Cauline Yates said. "Sometimes help babysit the kids when they have a doctors appointment, help them get to their appointments, sometimes lend a listening ear and help them out."

Officials from Martha Jefferson Hospital Breast Health and the UVa. Breast Care Program were also on hand to discuss their services.
