Welcome to The Augusta Chronicle's We Think Pink in Augusta website! Here you'll find inspiring stories of cancer survivors and information on resources and events throughout the area.

Each year, The Augusta Chronicle works to raise awareness of the fight against breast cancer with a visual show of support in our annual "pink" paper edition on October 1. Yes, it's actually pink!
