Worship in Pink is Sunday, October 8, 2017. Worship in Pink is a breast health and breast cancer
awareness program that provides educational materials to churches and faith based organizations to
spread the life saving message of early detection.  Everyone is asked to wear “something” pink
on Sunday, October 8!
DID YOU KNOW…Worship in Pink was created because:

* African-American women have a 44 percent higher death rate from breast cancer
* African- American women tend to get breast cancer at an earlier age, when it is more
aggressive.
