Faith is Digging the Pink


Breast Cancer is a battle many women are fighting with their loved ones. A woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 2 minutes, and while many have died from the illness, over 3.5 million women in the United States have survived. Surviving breast cancer means many things. When a woman is diagnosed, it results in endless doctors appointments, numerous medications,  chemo therapy, radiation, and even surgeries. But on a more personal level, this crippling diagnosis can take women away from work, family, and friends. It can be a blow to their self esteem when they lose their hair and eyebrows. It makes them nauseous and sick for days on end and it can be absolutely terrifying for them to know that they have a potentially deadly disease. It’s time to find a cure for this horrible disease. 

Faith Lutheran has an annual event to help contribute to finding a cure for breast cancer. Our high school volleyball teams put together an event called “Dig Pink”. This year they raised approximately two thousand dollars! Coach Amy Fisher wanted to give a big thanks to the high school volleyball teams for helping put this event together. “It was a great turnout and everyone is more than happy to contribute to the cause,” said Fisher. This is a disease that affects Faith families and the volleyball team is glad the Faith family is able to contribute. Joshua 1:9 says:

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
