Western Baptist Hospital and Murray State University are partnering this year with the “Pink Glove Dance,” a viral video competition where hospitals use their facilities, staff and patients to show how we all unite in the fight against Breast Cancer.
The response to the original pink glove video in 2009 from the healthcare community, survivors and family members of survivors was overwhelming and heartwarming. As a result, two years ago, Medline created a sequel featuring more than 4,000 healthcare workers and breast cancer survivors from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge to New York’s Times Square. The next year a competition was opened to medical facilities around the nation and Western Baptist entered the competition with their rendition of “Firework” by Katy Perry and was voted 6th in the nation.
If you or member of your family have been touched by breast cancer and you are interested in being a part of the video, please let us know. We might ask you to be a dancer or be in the background of some shots here on campus as we continue to develop the story line for our video.
We may also highlight survivors of breast cancer that are in our campus community. Even if you have not been affected by breast cancer, you can still participate. We might contact you for some late summer shots.
