Techs, docs and all staff in between, the family of Lutheran HealthCare donned pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness on Think Pink Day. The Radiation Oncology and Radiology departments led the annual event in the hospital lobby to raise awareness about this most common cancer among American women. Healthcare workers provided informational materials supplied by the American Cancer Society, taught self-breast examination techniques, handed out giveways and healthy snacks, and more. Many members that were off-site also showed their pink and participated in the day’s event by coming to work in all the pinkadelic shades.

A special two-for-one Standing O goes out to Girl Scout Troop 2717 of the Gravesend school-IS 228 for crafting breast cancer awareness pins and donating them to the hospital for patients. The pins will be distributed to survivors and their families. Party Fair and Pilo Arts Salon helped make the whoop-de-do a success with their generous donations, and Lutheran employees supplied the scrum-pink-tious baked goods. Cancer-care specialists shared some important tips with Standing O to maintain a healthy lifestyle: Exercise regularly, eat a well-balanced diet, and follow the American Cancer Society’s guidelines for early detection through screenings and increased awareness, all of which can help lower the risk. Lutheran Health Care [150 55th St. between First and Second avenues in Sunset Park, (718) 630–7000].
