Why is this week’s pa­per pink?

The Standard Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

For the sixth con­sec­u­tive year, the Polk County Stan­dard Jour­nal has gone pink to rec­og­nize October as Breast Can­cer Aware­ness Month. The pink pa­per hon­ors those who have been touched by breast can­cer. The col­ored news­pa­per also serves as a re­minder from the Breast Cen­ter at Floyd Med­i­cal Cen­ter, which seeks to ed­u­cate and em­power can­cer pa­tients.

Early de­tec­tion is cru­cial to suc­cess­fully treat­ing those with breast can­cer. Since 2001, Floyd Med­i­cal Cen­ter has fo­cused on breast health aware­ness month in October and the Stan­dard Jour­nal is help­ing to spread their mes­sage of hope.
