The Human Ecology division of Mercyhurst College is sponsoring a breast cancer awareness week beginning Monday, April 7. The student-run organization will have a table in the lobby of the Carolyn Herrmann Student Union each day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. where they will be selling pink breast cancer awareness T-shirts designed by Mercyhurst students ($12), pink carnations, and baked goods.
In addition, Denise Robison, director of the geriatrics institute at Mercyhurst North East, a cancer survivor herself, will speak at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 10, in the Walker Recital Hall.
The students will also be taking donations for pink ribbons to spread awareness of the continuing battle against breast cancer. All proceeds will go to the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition.
For more information, contact student Lauren Brechtel at 824-2833.
