Pink Gloves Encourage Early Screening

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

St. Vincent Healthcare gathered cancer survivors and law enforcement to make a video to raise breast cancer awareness.

The Pink Glove Dance is a nationwide competition that donates money to a breast cancer charity of the winners' choice. St. Vincent Healthcare invited the Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office, Billings Fire Department, and American Medical Response paramedics to participate in a part of the video. They danced to One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful." Cancer survivors hope people can celebrate life with them.

"Awareness is something that we need in all aspects of our life," said Deb Mattern, a cancer survivor for 17 years. "If you feel something that doesn't feel right, get screened. We're pushing people to early screening again."

St. Vincent organizers say that if other breast cancer survivors want to be a part of the video, they can call 238-6200. The video will debut on October 18th at noon at St. Vincent Healthcare's Mansfield Center.
