Welcome

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!

The Lydia Project is an organization that provides support for women facing any type of cancer anywhere in the world. Their support comes in many forms including a handmade tote filled with encouraging items and even financial assistance for rent, utilities and prescriptions for women living in Aiken, Burke, Columbia and Richmond Counties

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