Why is today’s edition pink?
Today’s Walker County Messenger 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 of 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 cancer awareness month in October and the Walker County Messenger is helping to spread the message of hope.
