Seeing Pink While Parking

HAGERSTOWN, MD- When you insert a coin into a parking meter this week, you will notice something in pink.  

Pink ribbons have been hung along meters and trees to promote awareness for breast cancer  throughout the four-state area.  This is being done by the Breast Cancer Awareness Cumberland Valley organization.  Officials say this is a way to people to learn more about the disease.

"I was 37 when I was diagnosed, I was fairly young.  Most of the time that young people are not diagnosed, now we are seeing more women diagnosed in younger age.  This is a great way to raise awareness of breast cancer in general," says Janet Lung, a breast cancer survivor.

The ribbons are placed in Washington, Frederick, Franklin, and Berkeley Counties, until the end of this week.
