Pink Thursday Oct. 8

Riley Hospital was on the road again for Pink Thursday, taking its educational message about breast cancer to a local business.

Exotic Tan Salon and Spa was selected this week. Employees there also received a free lunch.

The salon also participates in the Locks of Love program that provides human hair to make wigs for cancer patients.

E'Lea Taylor had her head shaved to support her sister, Tina Booker, when she was going through chemotherapy.

"I know that she cried. She said I shouldn't have done it," said E'Lea Taylor of Exotic Tan Salon & Spa. "But I would fight tigers for my sister. And I can't fight cancer for her. So I could at least be bald."

Over 100 entries were submitted by businesses in the past week.
