DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER — Downtown Portland and Vancouver turned Pink to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink Lemonade Project and other local breast cancer groups joined together to turn Portland’s Morrison Bridge lights pink. And on Oct. 1, the Oregon Convention Center joined in on the fun. In Vancouver, Dr. Allen Gabriel changed his sign at 703 Broadway to pink for the month of October, too. “The goal is for these large-scale, public visual display to remind the community about the importance of breast health, screening mammograms and support during and after treatment,” said Pink Lemonade Project CEO Susan Stearns in an email. “The participating community groups also wanted the pink lights to represent a thank you to all the breast health healthcare workers who tirelessly serve our community of breast cancer patients.”
