Breast Cancer Awareness Events


Cedar Rapids-St. Luke's Hospital is planning several events to raise breast cancer awareness among Eastern Iowans. Starting October 1, St. Luke's Helen G. Nassif Pavilion is going pink. The lights that illuminate the pavilion at night will be pink during Breast Cancer awareness month, which is October.

In addition, St. Luke's is once again teaming up with the Cedar Rapid RoughRiders to help raise awareness of breast cancer. Purchase tickets to the Saturday, October 25, RoughRiders game and all proceeds benefit St. Luke's Spirit Fund, which provides financial assistance for men and women diagnosed with cancer.
