“………. I don’t know the origins (of Pink Day), but two years back the receptionist of our company put Pink Day on our monthly calendar. At the time, we had several coworkers who had been diagnosed with breast cancer, so Amy Cumpston (former employee) and I decided to make Pink Day a celebration and awareness day for cancer at our work. We have continued the tradition each year and really do it big; we have been told by many how our interpretation has made a great impact on them. Please include this in your description of Pink Day so we can spread the love and awareness!!” …..Deah L. Stinson
