Women's Soccer:Wear pink for breast cancer and SU red this Sunday!

Posted by Amanda Kelly on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 10:30 AM PDT

  The SU Women’s Soccer team is playing the University of Hawaii at 1:00 p.m. at Championship Field on Sunday,
October 9.  As a 2004 alum and cancer survivor, I applaud our Women’s soccer team for naming this match  “Think Pink” to recognize October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.   The Susan Komen Foundation of Seattle will recognize local cancer survivors and promote their cause during the half time show.  Funding from Susan Komen Foundation established in 1982 has made advancements in breast cancer research possible.

Thanks to treatments developed through the Susan Komen Foundation, I am a survivor today.  I can’t wait to be there to wear my red and PINK,  celebrate Susan Komen, fellow cancer survivors and cheer on the SU Women’s Soccer Team for promoting  Breast Cancer Awareness!
