[September 01, 2018]  Along with the return of the Paint the Paper Pink Top Picture Project, this year LDN will be publishing an online magazine focusing on Breast Cancer Awareness and featuring some of the October events the paper will be involved in.

Among the pages of the magazine, LDN is going to be asking for survivors to place their name on the Wall of Hope.

How we as a society address this disease is different for every person. Some want to keep it to their self; while others want to share with friends, loved ones, and community what they are going through. In addition, there are privacy laws that must be respected for any type of medical condition. Because of this, we are asking that only the person in battle, sign the Wall of Warriors pages. Please do not sign on behalf of a friend or family member.

To help gather these names, Lincoln Daily News has established a separate email account for this campaign. If you are a survivor, we ask you to email us at Please tell us your name and how long you are a survivor.

The LDN/CCA Relay for Life team “Friends & Family” will also have a table set up on September 8th at the New Holland Tractor Show. Again, Wall of Hope pages will be available and we ask that you take a moment to stop by our table and sign in.

On September 29th, our relay team members will be at the ALMH Farmers Market. Volunteers will be helping with the Power of Produce section for kids, the “make-and-take” pumpkins, and also assisting ALMH staff with health screenings. While there, breast cancer survivors will also have an opportunity to sign the Wall of Hope pages for the magazine.

In addition, there will be two other events in October with signing opportunities. Look for more details on the Pink Pumpkin Fundraiser Auction, and the “Lean on Me” Survivor/Supporter Rally.

At these two events, guest books will be available for all in attendees with an opportunity to sign as a survivor or a supporter. Survivor names will be taken from the guest books and added to the online magazine.
