"Awareness, screenings, and early detection are the keys in the fight against breast cancer," states the Northeastern PA Gallery of Hope home page.
"If detected early, the five-year survival rate for localized breast cancer is 97 percent."
To promote breast cancer awareness, the Lehighton Area Lioness Lions Club will sponsor its ninth annual Pink Light Walk at the Lehighton Recreation Center on Oct. 7.
Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m., with the walk to follow at 6:30 p.m. Participants will walk from the recreation center to the Lehighton Amphitheatre and back.
