If you're seeing a lot of people in pink today, chances are they're honoring loved ones lost to breast cancer, and helping raise money to find a cure.

Organized by the Northwest Louisiana affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the 12-hour Friday in Pink fundraiser began at 6 a.m. and continues until 6 p.m. at the Shoppes at Bellemead on Youree Drive.

Everyone is encouraged to show up at the Shoppes wearing pink in honor of breast cancer survivors, do a little shopping and make a donation toward cancer research.

Purchases at sponsoring stores will qualify shoppers for a chance at a prize.

Friday in Pink shirts are also available for sale.

Cash, credit and checks are accepted.

The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be more than 230,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer this year, and about 39,000 deaths.
