October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and CHI St. Luke’s Health-Memorial Lufkin and the Volunteer Auxiliary are spreading the word about early detection and the importance of regular mammograms with some unlikely accomplices…pink flamingos!

Working off the theme of 'breast cancer is for the birds', Monday morning, the CHI St. Luke’s Health-Memorial Maintenance staff helped “flock” the front of the hospital with pink flamingos. The birds are available for sale in the Lufkin Gift Shop for $15.

Anyone can help show their support for breast cancer awareness by purchasing a flamingo for $15 at the Lufkin Gift Shop. Then, take the pink flamingo home or to work, share photos on social media, and help save lives. All proceeds benefit indigent cancer patients at the Temple Cancer Center with transportation, prescription drugs and overnight accommodations.
