SPRING, TX - A local company is kicking off breast cancer awareness month with a little style and color. Actually, a lot of color. Mainstreet America, a home builder's showcase in Spring, is turning pink.
"One of the things that we're doing is if you come out here and take a selfie and put it on Facebook, we'll donate $1 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation," says Barbara Feigin, co-owner of MainStreet America.
The coloring-for-a-cause is a collective effort by employees and dozens of professional painters. Inside the building, an eight-foot wall covered in pink ribbons serves as a reminder of those lost. Feigin, is one of the lucky ones. She beat the disease.
"This is really important to me because I had early detection. I had a mammogram, a routine mammogram. Breast cancer was not in my family, so I never thought anything about going for a mammogram until I found out I had breast cancer," Feigin says.
For survivors, the project paints a memorable picture in their hearts. This colorful act of love will likely leave many tickled pink.
