Celebrating Passionately Pink Day at Our Hospital
On October 17th 2008 the department celebrated Passionate Pink Day to raise funds for the Susan Komen foundation. The staff made donations to wear pink to work for the day, almost everyone participated.
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister,Susan G. Komen that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. If you would like to participate, then visit the website at Susan G. Komen.

Our staff celebrating the day.

Thanks Janet and Don
