“I woke up this morning and thought, ‘It can’t rain on our Pink Out Parade,’” said WKDZ/WHVO Radio Group’s general manager Beth Mann. “But the sun came out just in time for us to have a beautiful celebration today as we provide hope.”
Hope was the theme of the second annual Breast Cancer Awareness event sponsored in part by WKDZ/WHVO Radio Group, and although the morning rain may have kept some people away, the weather provided a stark comparison to cancer for Mann who was diagnosed with breast cancer one-and-a-half years ago.
“Cancer is cold,” she said. “There are rainy days, and there are lonely days, but our message is to never give up hope. Hope is that huge word, that four-letter word that we sometimes have to dig really deep to find. Today is about hope, and we have survivors here to prove it.”
Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp and Trigg County Judge-Executive Stan Humphries each spoke to the crowd.
