One in eight women will develop breast cancer, making it the leading cause of cancer death among women. Western Baptist Hospital has partnered with Murray State University this year for its second Pink Glove Dance video for breast cancer awareness. The video is posted on pinkglovedance.com. Viewers can vote through Nov. 2 (voting requires a Facebook account).Return to event list.
The Pink Glove Dance, a YouTube® phenomenon launched in Oregon three years ago for breast cancer awareness, first spread to Western Baptist Hospital last year. This year, it features more than 130 local employees, as well as MSU basketball coach Steve Prohm and members of the Murray State band and dance team to help spread the word about breast cancer awareness and early detection.
The video star is 44-year-old nurse Patty Harrison, diagnosed seven years ago. Because she is grateful to be cancer-free, thanks to early detection and treatment, she danced her way out of shyness hoping her courage would inspire others.
Last year, Western Baptist finished 6th in the national video competition. The hospital asks you to VOTE for their video, and share the link on your Facebook page. The top three winners can win up to $10,000 for a breast cancer charity. Western Baptist has designated the Kentucky Cancer Program’s “Just us Girls” mammography program, if it wins.
