Tamarack staff members pitched in once again this year to drape the Beckley center with Terri’s Tribute pink ribbon scarf, which now reaches over one mile in length. The scarf is hanging at Tamarack through October in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month as a striking visual symbol of love, inspiration and hope for all breast cancer patients and survivors. Organizers hope to see the scarf reach the 2-mile mark by the end of the month. Terri’s Tribute was started in January 2010 as a call to action after Terri Lynne Massey passed away on Oct. 29, 2009, at age 39 after a four-year battle against breast cancer, leaving behind a loving family and an inspired community. Sections of the scarf were created by over 400 women and four men from 29 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. For more information about the scarf and how to contribute to its continuing growth, call 1-88-TAMARACK.
