Team Up With Eastern For Think Pink Game

ImageEastern Women's Basketball invites friends and family to wear pink to Saturday's home basketball game to show their support of those who have fought or are still fighting against breast cancer.

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women in the United States. Women have a 1-in-8 chance of developing it in their lifetime; while not as common, men still are at risk of developing breast cancer as well. However, as advances in medicine and screening techniques are continuously made, more and more people are beating breast cancer.

By wearing pink to Saturday's game, you can express solidarity with breast cancer fighters and also raise awareness about how people can take steps to detect, prevent and treat breast cancer. Eastern will be accepting donations in the gym lobby to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, named after the former N.C. State Women's Basketball coach, is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization committed to cancer research. 

Saturday's game against Wilkes University begins at 1 p.m.

For more information about detecting, preventing, or living with breast cancer, please visit the link to the American Cancer Society below:
