Honor a Loved One This October By Lighting the Way with Pink

Lighting the Way with Pink: Support Breast Cancer Patients This October


An estimated 3.1 million women in the U.S. have a history of breast cancer – including those currently in treatment and those who have concluded treatment. To celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, Friends of UW Health is lighting the entrance of University Hospital with Pink Lights. To recognize the person in your life who has been affected by breast cancer, reserve a pink light.

  • 1 pink light = $10
  • 3 pink lights = $25
  • 100 pink lights = $100
  • Grid = $500

Reserve your lights online


Reservations and donations can be made online or by calling (608) 890-9957.


Proceeds will benefit cancer patients at the UW Health Breast Center and their families.
