On Monday, October 2, 2017 at sunset, the community is invited to join Nanticoke Cancer Care Services and the City of Seaford for the annual Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Awareness Walk to “Turn Sussex Pink” and kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The walk brings community members together to honor breast cancer survivors and remember those who lost their battle with breast cancer. Participants are encouraged to wear pink and will be given a pink light to carry throughout the three-block walk along a lighted path from the Nanticoke Cancer Care Center to Gateway Park, which will be decorated with pink lights and ribbons.

The walk will end with a ceremony at Gateway Park that will include opening remarks, a proclamation, a presentation from a featured speaker who is a cancer survivor and an inspirational performance by a soloist. For more information about the walk or for help scheduling a mammogram, call Nanticoke’s Cancer Nurse Navigator at 302-629-6611, extension 3765.

During the month of October, Nanticoke will host several activities to promote breast cancer awareness including a Pink Ribbon Survivor’s Tea on Friday, October 13 a bake sale on Thursday, October 19, and the annual Bling the Bra contest throughout the month.

Nanticoke Cancer Care Services and the Mammography team at Nanticoke would like to remind you that the first sign of breast cancer usually shows up on a woman’s mammogram before it can be felt or any other symptoms are present. Nanticoke now offers 3D mammography which provides increased accuracy and leads to fewer callbacks. Please remember to schedule your mammogram and remind all women in your life to get their mammogram! For more information about 3D mammography at Nanticoke, visit
