Government House goes pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month


— This weekend, the Government House was lit pink to raise awareness for breast cancer.

Earlier in the month, Governor Hogan issued a proclamation announcing October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In a statement on Facebook Governor Larry Hogan noted that in 2015, “almost 5,000 Marylanders will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and it’s crucial that we raise awareness and help educate people on the steps they can take to prevent and fight this type of cancer. Through awareness and education we can save lives, spread hope, and defeat cancer.”
