The first annual Think Pink! Women’s Health Fair for cancer was held at Little Falls Hospital on Friday from 9 am until 2 pm. There were free mammography tours, breast cancer awareness information, education, and giveaways during the event. Complimentary cider, coffee, doughnuts, and other refreshments rounded out the day as people were able to learn about the benefits and capabilities of the hospital.

According to Krista Spooner-Warner, one of the organizers of the event, “We organized this to bring awareness to breast cancer. We brought these vendors in so we could educate men and women about health and wellness as well.”

Spooner-Warner came from Cooperstown and they did this every year there, “so I wanted to bring this event here. We plan on making it bigger and better next year.”

According to the group that started the fair, “awareness is power”.

Vendors that participated were Lola Lane Jewelry, doTERRA, Arbonne, Wreaths & Crafts, NorWex, Fitness Farmacy, GPO Federal Credit Union and others.

All proceeds will benefit cancer service programs in the Herkimer, Oneida, and Madison Counties area.
