GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Two free Breast Cancer Awareness Month events were held Monday at Ah-Nab-Awen Park in downtown Grand Rapids.
Around 5 p.m., hundreds of women created a large "Ribbon of Hope," which was visible from above, using pink umbrellas provided by event sponsor Betty Ford Breast Care Services.
The effort was meant to honor former First Lady Betty Ford's legacy and everyone who has been touched by breast cancer.
The pink ribbon event followed a seminar about developments in breast cancer detection and treatment.
At the seminar were Spectrum Health doctors, the director of Betty Ford Breast Care Services, and Gerald and Betty Ford's daughter Susan Ford Bales.
Is tonight the night? Maybe it's tomorrow. Or even Sunday.
Two other people, who were inside the residence at the time, escaped safely.
A professor who participated in the anti-apartheid movement said Nelson Mandela taught the importance of struggle and sacrifice.
