Chapel Hill, Carrboro turning pink to support UNC cancer patients and families

Chapel Hill, NC – More than 50 Chapel Hill and Carrboro businesses and community groups are turning the towns pink during the months of September and October to raise funds for UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and its Comprehensive Cancer Support Program.

 This program is dedicated to helping patients and their caregivers with cancer treatment, recovery and survivorship.

Jennifer Bowman, special events coordinator for UNC Lineberger explains, “We thank our community businesses and partners for organizing a plethora of events and ways to support our patients and families during ‘Turn the Town Pink.’ Their energy and commitment will make a tremendous difference to our patients and families.”

The Comprehensive Cancer Support Program reflects UNC’s “whole person” approach to cancer care, including programs that provide patient educational materials, cancer support groups, individual and family counseling, massage therapy, nutritional counseling, symptom management and beautiful wigs, hats and scarves to warm both the head and the heart. In addition, the CCSP provides some assistance for economically stressed patients to meet the costs of traveling to and from Chapel Hill for treatment.
