Every year, nearly 4,000 women in Alabama are diagnosed with breast cancer.

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, on Tuesday Council President William Parker and the Council will be honoring the women and their families who have overcome this disease, those who are still fighting and everyone who has been impacted by a loss.

Members of the Council will be wearing pink ribbons and there will be banners recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

This past week, Legion Field was painted with pink ribbons and will remain that way for the month of October.

“Breast cancer is something that has impacted so many women and families, not just in our city, but around the world,” President Parker said.

“The Council wants to take a moment to shine a light on this disease and the brave women and their families who’ve faced this battle head on,” President Pro Tem Wardine Alexander said.
