If you are interested in a different, and tasty, way of increasing breast cancer awareness, join in as the community prepares to “Stand Together and Drink Pink.”
During the month of October, FirstHealth Cancer Care will help boost breast cancer awareness by setting up pink lemonade stands throughout FirstHealth hospitals (Moore Regional Hospital, Montgomery Memorial Hospital, Richmond Memorial Hospital and Moore Regional Hospital-Hoke Campus) and selling pink lemonade.
Community members, civic groups, businesses and others are invited to take part by setting up a stand in their store, restaurant, school or home, and donating the proceeds to the Cancer CARE Fund of The Foundation of FirstHealth. This local cancer fund aides cancer patients in the Sandhills region with various forms of assistance during the time of and after cancer treatment.
Since 2000, the Cancer CARE Fund has channeled more than $1 million in financial assistance and personal resources to assist patients with expenses related to:
- Transportation to and from treatment appointments
- Nutritional supplements
- and the FirstHealth Cancer Wellness Program
In the past two years, with the support of community members and local businesses, the Drink Pink campaign has donated more than $6,000 to the Cancer CARE Fund.
If interested in hosting a “Drink Pink” stand, visit www.firsthealth.org/drinkpink to register or download free promotional materials.
Those participating are encouraged to take pictures of their stands and post pictures on social media using the hashtags #StandTogether and #DrinkPink. Please tag FirstHealth of the Carolinas.
