AdventHealth Redmond Challenges Community to Light Porches Pink

Throughout the month of October, AdventHealth Redmond 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 Floyd, Gordon and Murray counties. Light bulbs are available for pick up at the following locations:

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

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 Curt Layton, director of diagnostic imaging at AdventHealth Redmond. “We hope this grass roots effort leads to more women thinking about their own health, ultimately leading to early detection and saved lives.”

The AdventHealth Redmond Women’s Center is home to some of the most advanced breast care technology available in Rome. It is accredited by the American College of Radiology as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) and offers the best in digital mammography, breast ultrasound, MRI and biopsy care.
