Pink and white flags in Huntington to raise awareness for breast cancer
The Town of Huntington is going pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Dozens of pink and white flags have been placed along Main Street and New York Avenue to bring awareness to the disease.
The flags are in partnership with Pink Aid, a local support group for women who have breast cancer.
“We are hopeful that as part of this awareness process with these flags, the rate of people, women getting screened will increase and go back to the rates to which they were prior to COVID,” says Councilman Mark Cuthbert.
Pink Aid’s mission is to provide screening and financial assistance to underserved breast cancer patients.
