Pink Up - February Newsletter

It's time again to think Pink Up. Breast cancer is the second leading cancer killer in U.S. women. Take the time today and on the 12th of every month to do a self-exam.

A group of third grade boys in Cape Girardeau is the only team in the youth Cape Optimist Basketball League to have pink jerseys. It was originally an honest mistake. But rather than return them, head coach Jeff Brune decided to use it as a perfect teaching moment. These kids now know the power of pink. They can be the difference between life and death. They can be the reminder to the women in their lives to get checked for the ugly C.

Nichole Cartmell will tell you the full story on the Breakfast Show and Heartland News at Five on Feb. 12, 2017.

In the meantime, tell your friends to sign up to receive this monthly newsletter to remind them to do their self-breast exam.
