Today is Wear Yellow Day for Cancer Awareness

Did you know that every day an estimated 75 Wisconsin residents are told “You have cancer”? And did you know that Preble High School’s STING Cancer group is the first student-based cancer support group of its kind in the United States? STING Cancer groups are now in eight local schools, with five more groups starting next year.

Today, Governor Jim Doyle proclaimed May 13 as “Wear Yellow Day” in Wisconsin due to the Preble High School STING Cancer group’s efforts. Senator Dave Hansen represented the Governor today in the Preble library. More than 5,000 yellow t-shirts were sold, and many others wore their own personal yellow.

Didn’t wear yellow today? Mark your calendars for next year!
