Think Pink. It's October.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Think pink! In the midst of the black and orange, the color pink symbolizes the fight of many.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so you will start seeing pink everywhere, as people show their support for those dealing with this condition.

I love the fountain in downtown Fairhope along the Eastern shore of Mobile Bay.

Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.

However, with increased healthcare costs and a rapidly increasing percentage of uninsured women, many simply cannot afford the cost of screening tests. These women are at a significantly higher risk of dying from breast cancer if later diagnosed.  

Watch this and keep those affected by breast cancer in your thoughts and prayers.

Think Pink, y'all!


  1. Love the fountain pink. Such a great cause. Any cancer needs to find a cure. xo

  2. Good morning, Ron! That fountain is so cool. My niece Tiffany was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, so please keep her in your prayers. Have a great day! xoxo

  3. Love the pink fountain. I lost my mom to breast cancer 19 years ago next month. Praying for a cure!
