Great Support for Pretty in Pink
Throughout October local salons, spas, restaurants and even the Eagle River firefighters rallied to raise awareness for breast cancer and Shaw Regional Cancer Center, a service of Vail Valley Medical Center.
Not only did these groups help flood the valley with pink to raise awareness, but over $13,000 was donated to help patients receive diagnostic testing who couldn't afford it otherwise.
Pretty In Pink was another strong example of our community's compassion and caring — traits that our cancer center and medical center strive to deliver each day.
I'd like to extend my deepest appreciation to everyone involved — the local businesses that saw the value in joining with us, the stylists and servers who volunteered their time and the donors who gave in support of breast cancer.
