Talk with a healthcare provider about your risk for breast cancer and the best screening plan for you.

Those interested in joining the effort can go to the airport's receptionist on the second floor of the passenger terminal building during regular office hours and write the name of a friend or loved one impacted by breast cancer on one or more pink flags. Follow the official Deseret News Instagram account for more photographs and videos from the staff.

For each cocktail sold through October 31, 2018, Fairmont Orchid will donate $1 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in their fight against breast cancer.


Among the towns going pink is Greenwich, where the Breast Cancer Alliance raised a pink flag in front of Town Hall.

The town is also participating in the GoForPink initiative that includes shopping, dining and education forums to support the BCA's mission of eliminating cancer and educating young women on breast health.

The Bettendorf Police Department are adding pink to their uniforms for the month of October. Also, Black women are more often found to have triple-negative breast cancer, an aggressive type that frequently returns after treatment. Both items are being sold to be donated. "We hope this campaign raises awareness of a disease that impacts so many".
