J.H. Rose Students Wear Pink To Support Cancer Research

J.H. Rose High School will be having Pink Day for its students Friday in support of cancer research.

The event is in honor of J.H. Rose teacher Liz Upton, who had a recent fight with breast cancer. Students will be allowed to wear pink during the school day for a charge of $1. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the American Cancer Society in honor of Upton.

    Coach Upton is so sweet.When I found out about her having cancer I almost cried. She is the nicest person I could have ever met that's why I had no problem supporting breast cancer today. :)

    I totally support Breast Cancer Awareness. I challenge every male viewer to don the hot pink! Now if we can get as much support for testicular/prostate cancer.

    The guys in the shop at Lee Chevrolet in Washington are wearing hot pink on Fridays during the month of October in honor of cancer research! I think it is awesome that they are doing that! Real men wear pink!!

    Hats off to Ms. Upton. My daughter had her and she is a wonderful example of all that an educator should be. Best of luck with your battle! Thanks to the staff of Rose to be an example of how we all should support each other through our own battles.

    I think that is so neat! Pink is such a happy color and it's a good way to get people involved in raising awareness for this disease. It's so much better than the facebook "I like it on the floor, I like it on the couch" nonsense!
