Throughout October, Bluebonnet's member service centers in Bastrop, Brenham, Giddings, Lockhart and Manor will glow pink at night. Bluebonnet field crews will wear pink hard hats and service trucks will display pink ribbon decals.

Members can visit Bluebonnet's member service centers to receive a pink ribbon pin, flower seed bookmark and a pink rubber bracelet to show their support, as well as a breast cancer reminder card with instructions to perform early detection self-exams for breast and testicular cancers.

Each year an estimated 297,000 women and 2,800 men are diagnosed with breast cancer.

 "Breast cancer is a disease that touches many people and families, so deeply," said Matt Bentke, Bluebonnet's general manager. "Bluebonnet is proud to be one of the many organizations across Central Texas that participate in this effort every October. We encourage everyone to learn more about early detection, preventive measures, and signs and symptoms of breast cancer."

Among the many resources available to learn more about breast cancer are the National Cancer Institute's website at, the American Cancer Society at, the National Breast Cancer Foundation at, or the Susan G. Komen Foundation at
