Great Support for Pretty in Pink
Throughout October local salons spas restaurants and even the Eagle River firefighters rallied to raise awareness for breast cancer and Shaw Regional Cancer Center a service of Vail Valley Medical Center.
Not only did these groups help flood the valley with pink to raise awareness but over $13000 was donated to help patients receive diagnostic testing who couldn't afford it otherwise.
Pretty In Pink was another strong example of our community's compassion and caring traits that our cancer center and medical center strive to deliver each day.
I'd like to extend my deepest appreciation to everyone involved the local businesses that saw the value in joining with us the stylists and servers who volunteered their time and the donors who gave in support of breast cancer.
