See Pink Go Blue: Support UM Breast Care Center with a Text Message

Hi, friends! October is right around the corner. Can you believe it?! I feel like the summer just flew right by us. Now the Fall season is here and you know it’s the Fall when you see all of your friends share on Instagram their favorite pumpkin spice foods and products. Am I right?

But October is not just part of pumpkin spice season. It is also known as “Pink October” because it is the month of Breast Cancer Awareness. Businesses, celebrities, organizations, and people across the nation “go pink” in the month of October to support spreading awareness for the disease.

In fact, businesses right here in Michigan are helping bring awareness to breast cancer.

Last night, I had the opportunity to learn more about one such initiative at a private fundraising event hosted by Pretzel Bell in Ann Arbor (A2).

Meeting Dr. Jacqueline Jeruss and Jon Carlson

It was such an honor to meet Dr. Jaqueline Jeruss, director of the University of Michigan Breast Care Center and Breast Surgical Oncology Fellowship, and Jon Carlson, Pretzel Bell owner and a University of Michigan alumnus. Dr. Jeruss’ passion for the Breast Care Center is inspiring.

Carlson is also very passionate about raising awareness for breast cancer and the center. His enthusiasm for See Pink Go Blue was very evident as he told me more people attended this year’s event in comparison to last year.

It just goes to show how successful the See Pink Go Blue campaign is and how much the A2 community want to support the UM Breast Care Center!
