Saturday the Austin community kicked off ‘Paint the Town Pink,’ an annual campaign to raise funds for breast cancer and other cancer research at the Hormel Institute, with ‘Plunging for Pink.’
130 jumpers registered for Plunging for Pink this year.
Cheryl Constancio is this year’s Paint the Town Pink ambassador. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. After more than a year of treatments, she was given the clear in march 2014.
That fall, she was diagnosed in her other breast. Today she can say she’s a survivor.
“It’s so heart whelming – and just the whole Paint the Town Pink and all the events…”
