Student urges USC to wear pink tomorrow for breast cancer awarness

Friday is 'Pink Day'

Second-year dance performance student Camille Sellers wants to get the word out: Wear pink tomorrow in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“I have a lot of family who have passed away from breast cancer as well as other blood relatives who have survived, so I personally wanted to reach out to other people and have them understand how big of an impact [cancer] has as well,” Sellers said.

Sellers is teaming up with Student Media to have Friday become Pink Day. Tomorrow, students are urged to wear as much pink as possible in honor of those who have lost their lives or are currently fighting a battle against cancer.  

“I would love to see as many people to wear pink as possible,” Sellers said. “It’s almost like when you go to a gameday and see everyone wearing garnet and black, it’s really awesome. Hopefully, this year will be 10 times better.”

Sellers urged students to go beyond simply donating a dollar at grocery stores by donating directly to organizations that fund breast cancer research. You can visit the websites of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the National Breast Cancer Foundation and others to donate and learn more.

“A little goes a long way,” Sellers said.
