BRMC to light October pink for breast cancer awareness

Posted on: 09/22/2016

Bradford Regional Medical Center encourages people to light their porches pink during October for breast cancer awareness month.

BRMC is selling pink light bulbs at the hospital’s gift for $5 each (cash only). Bulbs come in a special gift box and include an optional gift card to give a fighter or survivor. All proceeds will benefit the Pink Pumpkin Project, a local non-profit organization that provides financial and emotional support to those fighting breast cancer.

The Light the Night Pink community outreach campaign strives to raise awareness for early detection and prevention of breast cancer which affects one in eight women and about 1 in 1,000 men.

Upper Allegheny Health System is the parent company of Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital. An integration of two prominent community hospitals in Southwestern New York state and Northwestern Pennsylvania, Upper Allegheny Health System’s goal is the enhancement of each hospital’s mission of care and service to their respective communities with the common goal of improving care, enhancing clinical programs and providing best-in-class service for various health needs.
