Pink chair raises cancer awareness
October 12, 2010
Talking about breast cancer used to be taboo, but today, pink ribbons are treated with support and respect.
Now, a pink chair is sparking conversation about the disease, the fifth most common cause of cancer death.
Issaquah’s Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzeria is partnering with Swedish Medical Center to celebrate 25 years of breast cancer awareness, education and empowerment.
In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Swedish Medical Center True Family Women’s Cancer Center — set to open in Seattle in 2012 — is placing pink chairs and informational posters across the Seattle area. The pink chairs have already been on display at The Paramount, Seattle Art Museum, Center for Wooden Boats, Seattle Arts and Lectures series, and Gene Juarez Salon.
The pink chair comes Oct. 25-31 to Tutta Bella, 715 N.W. Gilman Blvd.
