Meet at park Monday for Think Pink Day

The second annual Think Pink Day will be Monday, Oct. 23.

The event is held to bring the community together to focus on Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Everyone in the community is encouraged to wear pink all day, then meet at Roberts Point Park at 5:30

p.m. for a “big pink picture,” said Mary Henkel Judson, a breast cancer survivor who organizes the event.

Breast cancer survivors, anyone battling the disease or any form of cancer, and anyone who has been touched by cancer is urged to gather at the park Monday. Sally Marco, who showed up last year in her pink car that became the central focus of the “big pink picture” will be back again this year.

Representatives from the Port Aransas Relay for Life will be on hand with information about the 2007 relay, the second to be held in Port Aransas. The event will be held Friday to Saturday, April 20-21. A representative of Christus Spohn’s Breast Center also will attend Think Pink Day.

“If there is anything other than medical advances that make a difference to those who suffer or who have suffered cancer, it is the support of family and friends. Think Pink Day is a way to show you care and, therefore, make a meaningful difference to cancer patients – past, present and future,” Judson said.
