Don't hide your breast cancer

Do you or someone you know have breast cancer? Blessing Breast Center is selling shirts to help spread awareness of the disease.

This is the sixth year for the t-shirt campaign.

There are three designs available in different colors and sizes.

There are short-sleeve and long-sleeve tees, hoodies, crewneck sweatshirts, and sweatpants.

Your purchase of Breast Cancer Awareness apparel will benefit the Blessing Breast Center Financial Assistance Program , which helps women with no insurance or high deductible insurance pay the cost of their breast healthcare needs.

The pink merchandise will be available to the public from October 5-20 at a temporary Blessing Breast Cancer store. It will be at 1135 Broadway, the former Dr. Shatz office building.

The store will be open from 1-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with an extra hour of shopping - until 6 p.m. - on Wednesdays.

Lori Wilkey, Blessing Breast Cancer manager, would like you to wear your apparel on Breast Cancer Awareness Day which is October 21.

Since the Financial Assistance Program was established in 2008, $156,000 in breast imaging has been provided to more than 180 women in need.
