CCbuilding lights1 news flash

The County Administration Building was lit up in teal, green and pink lights on Thursday, October 13th, 2022 to shine a light on awareness and funding for metastatic breast cancer research. Every year, more than 685,000 people worldwide die from metastatic breast cancer (MBC), also known as Stage 4 or advanced breast cancer, for which there is no cure. This happens when cancer spreads beyond the breast to other parts of the body. 

For National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day, over 200 landmarks across all 50 U.S. states, as well as Canada and Ireland, were light up in the MBC awareness colors of teal, green, and pink, as part of the #LightUpMBC campaign. The tri-color ribbon symbolizes hope, immortality, healing, and spirituality.
