Culver women 'paint the town pink' for breast cancer awareness

November 5, 2011

Culver residents Karen Easterday and Sue Roth wanted breast cancer to get some attention during the month -- October -- dedicated to its awareness, and it seems fair to say they succeeded handily. It's hard to miss two women decked out in bright pink, adorned with pink feather boas, and wearing t-shirts with the text, "Yes they're fake -- my real ones tried to kill me!" as they walk through the business districts of Culver.

That visibility, of course, was the whole point, say Easterday and Roth, both of whom have battled the disease and won.

"It started as a joke," says Roth.
