Throughout the month of October, AdventHealth Murray is challenging our community to light porches pink to spread awareness of breast cancer.

We are shining a light on breast cancer, which affects one in eight women and is easily treatable when caught early. Community members are invited to participate in this experience by installing a pink light bulb in their front porch light socket, creating a pink evening glow.

Twenty thousand pink light bulbs will be distributed across Murray, Gordon and Floyd counties. Light bulbs are available for pick up at the following locations:

  • AdventHealth Murray, Main Entrance Lobby
    707 Old Dalton Road, Chatsworth, GA 30705
  • AdventHealth Gordon, East Entrance Lobby
    1035 Red Bud Road, Calhoun, GA 30701
  • AdventHealth Redmond, Main Entrance Lobby
    501 Redmond Road, Rome, GA 30165

When lighting your porch pink, be sure to take photos and share them on social media with the #PinkPorchGA hashtag along with your reasons for shining a light on breast cancer.

You can also honor — or remember — a loved one with breast cancer by emailing their name to [email protected]. Each name will be printed for a mural to display in the hospital during October.

“There is no greater impact to making changes for your health than hearing someone’s personal journey through cancer,” said Lanell Jacobs, director of oncology services at AdventHealth Gordon. “We hope this grass roots effort leads to more women thinking about their own health, ultimately leading to early detection and saved lives.”
