October 28th will be a "pink out". Employees are being asked to come to work wearing pink on Friday, October 28th, in an effort to raise awareness of breast cancer. About 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2016, an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 61,000 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer (breastcancer.org). All participants are asked to make donations to help fund The Women for Women organization at St. Mary's Hospital, which provides free mammograms for women who are unable to afford one.
