Help Raise breast cancer awareness by celebrating Indigenous Pink Day with the American Indian Cancer Foundation.

Indigenous Pink Day 2017

 

Indigenous Pink Day is a national breast cancer awareness campaign for American Indians/Alaska Natives.  Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death and the most common cancer found in American Indian/Alaska Native women.  The goal of Indigenous Pink Day is to educate all indigenous people of the importance of early detection and remind men and women to keep up to date on their screenings.  This is a national awareness campaign, so you can participate from wherever you are!

How to celebrate Indigenous Pink Day with us on Thursday, October 19:
