Pink Pumpkin Painting Party for Breast Cancer Awareness

UF&Shands hosted its first Pink Pumpkin Painting Party on Oct. 15 in honor of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The UF&Shands Pink Pumpkin Patch was a sight to behold on the lawn of the Cancer/Genetics Research Complex for more than 500 members of the Gainesville and UF&Shands communities who joined the party to pick out a pumpkin to paint pink, decorate and take home for display in effort to spread the word about early detection of breast cancer to save lives.
