Help Us “Turn Pink” in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
An IU Health Tipton Hospital Release
—Carmel, Ind. — It’s that time again! Indiana University Health North, Saxony & Tipton Hospitals will turn their campuses pink in October, in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The public is invited to join the cause throughout October by donating $5 or more in memory of someone who lost their fight against breast cancer, to honor a friend whose life was touched by breast cancer, or to express gratitude toward a family member, friend or caregiver who helped you through your breast cancer journey. All donations are tax deductible and go toward helping IU Health North, Saxony & Tipton patients through their fight against breast cancer.
“This is one of our favorite times of year when we turn our hospitals pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” said Tracy Miller, Philanthropy Director, IU Health North, Saxony & Tipton Hospitals. “We all know someone who has been touched by breast cancer, and this is an opportunity for us to raise community awareness about not only remembering to get those yearly mammograms that could save your life but also giving back so we can continue to provide the best care for our breast cancer patients.”
HOW DO I DONATE?
The public can donate in one of three ways:
1. Online (With Credit Card) – Visit iuhealth.org/turnpink to make an online donation to our breast care programs at IU Health North, Saxony & Tipton Hospitals.
2. In Person (With Cash, Check or Credit Card) – Visit IU Health North Hospital at 11700 N. Meridian St. in Carmel to visit our "Turn Pink" booth table in our first floor Atrium, available Monday-Friday, from 11:30am–1pm.

With your $5 donation, you'll be able to put the name of the person you'd like to honor on a pink ribbon sheet that will be displayed in the IU Health North Hospital Atrium throughout October.
Visitors to all three hospitals may notice such things as pink ribbons adorning outdoor pillars, pink water running through outdoor fountains, pink mums decorating the landscapes, and pink lights shining in the trees.
The finishing touches of pink will be completed at each hospital’s campus by Monday, Sept. 29. Any media officials interested in taking photos or b-roll of the “pink” campuses, or speaking with hospital executives or members of our breast care programs, can contact Melissa Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
