Pink Dye for Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Blue Valley Laboratories has developed a pink dye that has been used in fountains in Kansas City for many years, as well as in other communities around the country, to help bring attention to the cause. The Kansas City “In the Pink” campaign describes the annual event by saying, “The striking appearance of the pink fountains is a reminder of the lives lost to breast cancer, a celebration of the lives spared through awareness and quality cancer care, and a signal to continue the research necessary to tackle the disease.” The Pennsylvania Commission for Women turns fountains pink across Pennsylvania, and they write, “The fountains serve as a reminder for women to do their monthly breast self exams, schedule their yearly mammogram, and for those women and families affected by the disease, the commission hopes the fountains let them know that they are on our mind.” Blue Valley Laboratories is proud to help raise awareness with the harmless pink dye that turns fountains into visual reminders of this important issue. To order your pink dye, please call us at (816) 471-4719.
