In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

White House To Go Pink

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the White House is getting involved.

Both the White House and the Main Gate of the U.S. Naval Observatory will be lit pink Thursday night at 6:29pm ET.

Also, this Friday, October 15th, Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius will host a conference call with women’s groups and breast cancer survivors and advocates to discuss the importance of screenings and early detection services, such as mammograms and related benefits under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Other organizations in our area supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month include the Washington Redskins who held a breast cancer survivor luncheon and glam fest out at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Va; and the Susan G. Koman for the Cure Foundation's annual five mile walk in DC.
