Saint Francis Goes Pink for Breast Cancer
In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Saint Francis has launched Pink Up Cape, a campaign to raise awareness of the disease in the community and throughout the Medical Center. Beginning October 1, Saint Francis' exterior will be lit with pink lights, employees will wear pink exam gloves and pink scrubs, and all advertising materials will go pink in support of the cause.
A specialized "Pink Parade" video, featuring breast cancer survivors, Saint Francis employees and families, Southeast Missouri State University athletes and musicians, and other community members, is posted online at www.sfmc.net and on YouTube and Facebook for everyone to view.
Other events in October are the Dig for Life Kickoff October 8, RENEW for Women October 20, Dig for Life Pink Out Night October 26 and the Saint Francis Auxiliary Pink Pumpkin Bake Sale October 29. Additional information on these events may be found at www.sfmc.net or by calling 573-331-5877.
