Historic fountain dyed pink for breast cancer awareness

A loved landmark in Savannah is flowing pink.
In honor of breast cancer awareness month pink magic colored the water signaling the official Saint Joseph/Candler, Savannah Morning News 9th annual Paint the Town Pink campaign.
Dressed in pink and ringing cow bells, survivors expressed their excitement.
They encourage women to get mammograms and raise awareness for the 1 in 8 women that will be told they have breast cancer at some point in their life.
“I didn’t even have a lump. So if it wasn’t for a routine mammogram I never would have ever found mine when I did. It’s just important for everyone. Get your daughters, get your mothers get everyone out there and make sure they get their mammogram,” explains Survivor, Crystal Murphy Higgins.
In the last 5 years nearly 4,000 free mammograms have been given through the Telfair Mammography Fund.
