Cable bridge in teal for ovarian cancer awareness month

By the Herald staffAugust 29, 2013 

Ann Blosser takes a picture of her mother Pat Scott, both of Kennewick, on Thursday, after the cable bridge lit up with teal lights for the first time to raise awareness for ovarian cancer month. Scott, a three-time survivor of ovarian cancer said it was touching to see the bridge glow teal.

Kay Kerbyson, president of Ovarian Cancer Together, a local support group, had a harder time putting what this project meant into words. "I've been looking forward to it for so long," says Kerbyson, a four-time ovarian cancer survivor whom doctors have told will be facing it a fifth time. "I wanted to get it done this year in case they're doing this in my memory next year." She says the group will be tying teal ribbons throughout the Tri-Cities the next few days and is always looking for more volunteers.
