Cancer memory tree brightens up Grundy County Health Dept.

October is breast cancer awareness month. The Grundy County Health Department has put up a tree in the lobby of the Grundy County Administration building at 1320 Union St. in Morris that will become a ribbon tree.

The health department invites Grundy County residents to come to the administration building to place a ribbon on the tree in memory of a person that has lost their life to cancer, or someone who is battling the disease, or is a cancer survivor.

While the ribbons are pink, they are not limited to names of only those affected by breast cancer.

Many people filled out ribbons at the health department table during the Grundy County Corn Festival. Those ribbons are now displayed on the tree at the county administration building.

While pink does represent breast cancer, teal represents ovarian cancer, white represents lung cancer, orange represents leukemia, yellow represents sarcoma/bone cancer and light blue represents prostate cancer.

Pink wristbands are also on sale for $1.  All proceeds to the American Cancer Society.

Remember that early detection is the key to having a fighting chance.
