Colors of Cancer wrap up October events

Eight last-day events are happening on Wednesday, Oct. 31, with the arrival of the final day for all donations to Daly Hospital Foundation’s Color of Cancer campaign to be matched Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital.

The battle against all cancers has been brought into the community conversation with the transformation of the annual October Breast Cancer awareness month “Sprinkle Pink” to “Colors of Cancer.”

With the Aid for Mammography fund up to $350,000 and services provided to nearly 1,000 breast cancer patients, organizers said it was time to expand.

Daly Hospital Foundation stepped up and its director, Stacie Duce, called the change as “Sprinkle Pink ignited to the Colors of Cancer” a success.

"The Daly Hospital Foundation's Board of Directors and staff have been humbled by the generosity and creativity of our community fundraising organizers,” Duce said. “We wanted to continue the momentum of so many who have given over the years as well as invite new sponsors, new groups, new individuals to initiate philanthropy according to their passions, noble causes and tugged heart strings. The stories behind the motivation to be involved in this "Colors of Cancer" campaign have been very tender.”
