This Friday morning, more than 200 breast cancer survivors – dressed in pink – will gather at Melbourne International Airport to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This official start of “Pink October” month begins at 9 a.m., Friday Oct. 1 in the airport atrium.
“All of us at Melbourne International Airport have someone in our lives who has been affected by cancer,” said Diana Flett, marketing manager at Melbourne International Airport. “It’s what makes raising awareness of breast cancer so important.”
Dignitaries such as Brevard County Sheriff Jack Parker will address survivors and guests. Attendees also will have opportunities to win special prizes. In addition, Delta representatives will have official Pink Boutique items for sale to benefit breast cancer research.
The public is invited to attend and a special invitation is extended to survivors. Light refreshments will be served.
The survivor reception will also provide the opportunity to register to participate in two Brevard County recognition walks, both being held on Oct. 23.
