The Pink Glove Dance



A few months ago Mommy and about 600 other employees particpated in taping a video to raise awareness for breast cancer. The Pink Glove Dance has gained popularity with hospitals across the nation. Our hospital decided to join in to help fight this awful disease. There are no kitties in this video, but you will see one sweet woofie who joined his Mommy (who is a breast cancer survivor - Yay!). We were all very proud that Mommy rocked the pink - I'm not telling you exactly where she is, but I will tell you she was with a big group outside in the hospital's Serenity Garden. Wearing Pink. Ha-Ha!
The local TV station taped the video and edited it for us. Here's what the news said about it...
"It's a light hearted dance video, but the message couldn't be more serious.

Employees and administration of St. Rita's Medical Center gathered for the premiere showing of the new pink glove video. 600 St. Rita's employees and 40 breast cancer survivors are featured in the dance video wearing pink gloves.
The message is about the importance of mammograms and early detection when it comes to breast cancer. The pink glove dance will be used in house at St. Rita's and it will be used in a variety of ways as a marketing and advertising tool about breast cancer awareness, weaving the message throughout the community in an effort to fight breast cancer."

Rock on hospital beans, breast cancer sux!
