Pink Glove Dance

Providence St. Vincent Medical Center employees donned pink gloves and danced in support of breast cancer awareness.
The Pink Glove dance has gotten over 1.6 million hits on YouTube!
If you haven't seen it yet, watch it HERE.
(The more YouTube hits, the more funding for breast cancer awareness...SO SEND ON THIS LINK!!!)

"We thought that seeing health care workers wear pink gloves would remind people to talk about breast cancer and that some of the money from the gloves could be used to pay for mammograms for women that couldn't afford it," said Sue MacInnes of Medline Industries Inc., the company that created the gloves. Medline Industries Inc. says it will donate a portion of the profits from the pink gloves to fund mammograms for women who otherwise would not get them.*
