All In, All Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Event
In order to promote breast cancer awareness, the Vice President for University Outreach, in collaboration with The Office of Public Service, the Kappa Chi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and Beta Omega Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi, hosted the 3rd annual All In, All Pink event on Friday, October 18, 2013. This event was enormously successful thanks in part to our wonderfully talented guest speakers:
- Madison Billingsley, 25 year old AU Nursing School Graduate and Cancer Survivor
- Dr. Brandon Johnson, Hematology/Oncology Physician with East Alabama Medical Center
- Asher Michon, Speaking on behalf of the Lower Alabama Chapter of the Guardians of the Ribbon and "Cindy" the pink fire truck
We would also like to thank our partners from the Auburn University School of Nursing, Auburn University Chapter of Student National Pharmacy Association (SNPHA), The American Cancer Society, The Joy to Life Foundation, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama, and the Harold A. Franklin Society for helping us in our efforts to enhance campus wide knowledge of breast cancer and its preventative measures.
A special thanks goes out to the survivors, family, and friends who submitted a 'Breast Cancer Story' for inclusion in the All In, All Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Event.

"Cindy" the Pink Fire Truck
The Lower Alabama Chapter of the Guardians of the Ribbon was in attendance with their pink fire truck named "Cindy"! Pink Heals is an organization started by firemen that drive pink fire trucks and pink police cars across America bringing the "Cares Enough to Wear Pink" and Pink Heals Movement to a city near you! They focus their labor of love on the women of this country and wage war on anything that may harm her starting with cancer!
