Capitol Fountain Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Phu Nguyen and his 3-yearold granddaughter, Tiffany Nguyen, take a rest from their walk around the Capitol complex on Sunday to view the Capitol fountain, turned pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Pennsylvania Commission for Women turned the state Capitol’s Veterans War Memorial Fountain hot pink to highlight October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition estimates that 9,500 Pennsylvania women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and nearly 2,200 lose their lives to the disease. Additionally, more than 100,000 women in Pennsylvania are currently living with breast cancer.
