Be part of Human Pink Ribbon on Friday

Residents are invited to put on their best pink garb and take part in a photo shoot Friday at SUNY Oswego.

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Oswego County Opportunities’ Cancer Services Program Partnership has joined SUNY Oswego to assist them in their efforts to raise awareness of breast cancer in Oswego County and encourage faculty, staff and community members to receive the cancer screenings they need.

Those gathered Friday will be part of the 4th annual Human Pink Ribbon. Gather in front of Culkin Hall at 11 a.m. for the photo shoot.

Carolyn Handville, coordinator for the Cancer Services Program Partnership (CSPP), has made appearances throughout the community disseminating information on the free clinical breast exams, mammograms and other free cancer screenings including pap/pelvic exams and colorectal cancer that are offered through the CSPP.

“Our goal continues to be to raise awareness and register eligible community members who are both uninsured and between 40 and 64 years of age into the program to obtain their free screenings. October provides added opportunity for the Cancer Services Program to promote the services offered through the program while everyone is thinking about breast cancer and to support the many community members in Oswego County that have been affected by this disease,” said Handville.
