Why is to­day’s edi­tion pink?

Walker County Messenger - - Front Page -

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.
