Tell the Statesman a breast cancer story

September 22, 2013 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Politics and patriotism are all about the red, white and blue. But on Oct. 2, the Opinions page of the Statesman goes strictly pink by offering Reader’s Views and Letters to the Editor that recognize and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Tell us your story if you are a breast cancer survivor or a caregiver, a family member or friend — especially someone who has witnessed courage or compassion in the face of this disease.

We aim for Reader’s Views that are 600 words or less, and letters that are 200 words or less. But if your piece feels somewhere in between, we’ll just call it an essay.

If we are blessed with more submissions than we can publish in one day, don’t worry. It is called Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we will do our best to get your piece in during October. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing your poignant pink stories.

Deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26. To submit, follow the guidlines in the “Want Your Say?” box that runs with all of our Letters to the Editor.

Thank you
