Be a part of the Arenac County Independent Pink Page


In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Arenac County Independent will be painting its flag pink for the remainder of the October issues and on Oct. 28, will be featuring a “Pink Page,” which will include testimonials from residents of the community who have been affected by breast cancer in some way.

Readers, have you or someone you love survived breast cancer? Or have you lost a loved one to breast cancer?

Please share your testimonials, whether they be words of hope, advice, or encouragement, for the Oct. 28 Pink Page. Testimonials can be posted online, or sent to the Independent via E-mail at

Because the number of people touched by breast cancer is so great, we ask that testimonials be kept short, approximately 150 words or less, to ensure as many people’s stories as possible can be included.

For more information on the Pink Page, call 989-846-4531. Businesses interested in being a part of the Independent’s project to increase breast cancer awareness can reach Tom Gates at the number above, or via E-mail at

I was diagnosed 13 years ago with ductal carcinoma in situ, a non invasive cancer.

After a surgical biopsy and no further treatment, I was cancer free.

This was a very frightning time in my life, but early detection is the key. Thank you for

this oppurtunity to let others know this is not a death sentence. Your annual mamogram

takes very little time, but gives you peace of mind! Kathy
