Riverside Healthcare Lights the Fight Against Breast Cancer

Going pink to bring breast cancer awareness to our community 

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to further generate the awareness of breast cancer in our communities, Riverside Healthcare will glow pink to celebrate breast health - and women's health - throughout the month of October. 

This year, Riverside is encouraging everyone to "think pink" and to know that early detection is always your best protection. Riverside is pleased to offer a wide variety of comprehensive resources for women to feel equipped and empowered in their health. 

Riverside's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month activities include:

Riverside Medical Center goes pink!
Once again, the East Tower and walkway of Riverside Medical Center will be illuminated in pink to inspire passersby to honor those touched by breast cancer and bring light to the importance of early detection. There will also be vinyl window clings throughout the hospital with breast cancer awareness facts.

Breast Cancer Awareness on Social Media
Share your stories of hope, compassion and triumph on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube, plus look for breast cancer awareness information and resources all month long.
