Nova Medical Centers’ has Pink Out Day In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Nova Medical Centers had a Pink Out Day.
The staff of Nova Medical Centers, an occupational medicine services provider, was encouraged to wear pink on Friday, October 18, 2013, for Pink Out Day.
Employees across all fields participated; the corporate office, the medical centers, the physical therapy centers, and the sales team were spotted in pink.
Dr. Anthony Cheung, PT, DPT, CKTP, our National Itinerant Physical Therapist and Dr. Trisha Perry, PT, DPT, our Vice President of Therapy Services and National Therapy Director posed in pink!
Everything from pink sweaters and shirts, pink nail polish, pink undershirts, pink shoes and pink jewelry could be found!
Everyone was asked to wear pink in support of someone they love who has or had breast cancer.
According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer does not solely affect women though. Men are diagnosed at a much smaller rate than women, but their chances for being diagnosed with breast cancer increases with age. In fact, most cases of breast cancer in men occur between the ages of 65 and 67.
There is hope; there are 2.9 million breast cancer survivors alive in the U.S. today – the largest group of all cancer survivors.
