Cardinal Red Goes Pink for a Day
When you looked out on the court of The University of Louisville Lady Cardinals Women’s Basketball game on Saturday at KFC Yum Center, you may have noticed something a little different. Instead of the usual Cardinal Red, the team sported pink – it was their way to honor breast cancer awareness and designated “Go Pink” Day at the game.
The James Graham Brown Cancer Center and the Kentucky Cancer Program were on hand to greet visitors and provide information on the Cancer Center and on breast cancer. Thousands of cancer survivors were invited to attend the game for free. At half-time, all breast cancer survivors were honored on the court.
As the first nationally-accredited breast cancer center in the region, The James Graham Brown Cancer Center sees approximately 4500 women for breast screenings in the center and reaches out to another 4300 women annually through the mobile mammography program. The van visits companies, churches or other community locations to increase access to breast cancer screenings for women who need them.
