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!

We hope you'll join us in the support of this important cause!




Faces of Survival: Jennifer Charney

When Jennifer Charney first found a lump in her breast around Thanksgiving last year, breast cancer wasn't even on her radar. The mother of eight was nursing her youngest child, Julie, who was about eight months old at the time.

Faces of Survival: Shirley Grier

Shirley Grier was taking a bath in 1968 when she felt a knot in her right breast. She immediately called the doctor but he thought it was fatty tissue and related to the birth control pills she was taking.

Faces of Survival: Melinda Brown

Melinda Brown's diagnosis came five years after her mother's.

Faces of Survival: June Jones

When a bump appeared between June Jones' breasts in the spring of 2013, she thought it was just a bug bite.

Faces of Survival: Jenny Roper

At age 36, Jenny Roper's gynecologist decided to do a baseline mammogram. Roper was a little apprehensive about the procedure itself, but wasn't worried at all beyond that. It came back abnormal.

Faces of Survival: Kay Jackson

Kay Jackson was putting on her makeup one morning after her shower when her husband happened to notice a shadow on her left breast. He asked if she'd bruised herself, and she'd replied, "I don't think so."
