JACKSON, Wyo. — October is Brest Cancer Awareness Month, and Jackson is celebrating by “Lighting the Town Pink”. On Tuesday, October 1 from 5:30–6:30 p.m., join in and watch pink lights illuminate the southeast antler arch on the Town Square. St. John’s Hospital Foundation and St. John’s Medical Center are hosting the event to honor breast cancer survivors in our community.

The evening will feature information on cancer services and brief remarks about local advances and resources for the early detection and treatment of breast cancer.

“Our community has offered tremendous support, allowing us to acquire 3D mammography and brachytherapy equipment, a specialized form of radiation therapy to treat prostate, breast, and skin cancers,” said Karen Connelly, communications officer at St. John’s Medical Center. “This event helps us celebrate survivors and learn about the importance of early detection and integrated treatment options.”

Remarks will begin at 5:45 pm. The event is free to the public and will feature refreshments and giveaways. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held at the Wort Hotel.
