Pink Thursday

Riley Hospital took its Pink Thursday lunch to workers at Alliance Health Center.

Riley has been sharing important information this month about the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

Alliance employee Tina Westberry is a 3-time survivor of breast cancer. She says keeping a sense of humor through difficulty is one key to her recovery.

"I had eight guys here that means a lot to me that shaved their heads so I wouldn't be bald by myself," Westberry said. "And we also had it takes real men to wear pink day. My family here and my family at home and my church family and neighborhood and close friends, the support has really been awesome."

Riley Hospital has been generating conversations about breast cancer during October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
