Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - an art exhibit at Rapides Regional Medical Center is recognizing breast cancer awareness month. 


The paintings and photos hung along the south tower hallway are works by Louisiana artists based on the theme - pink - in honor of raising awareness for breast cancer. 

"Because it's the month of October, we have the Komen Race, we have breast cancer awareness around town, Arts in Healthcare wanted to do something in the art world, so we've done it for a couple of years now and it's really been by the public, by our staff by the patients and visitors as well." Said Karen Hathorn. 

The gallery also encourages women to focus on preventing breast cancer through annual mammograms, doctors visits and practicing self examinations.
