Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we at are dedicated to honoring all those whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.

Two new features debut today on our site. One is a small but meaningful and lovely remembrance – a pink candle you can light on the Guest Book.

For the month of October, you can light a pink candle in remembrance of a friend or family member who battled the disease, helped with the search for a cure, supported a loved one through illness, or was affected by breast cancer in any way.

Today, we also unveil a new memorial site honoring those whose lives were touched by breast cancer. Over the years, we have published thousands of obituaries and Guest Books for those who have lived with breast cancer and those who have worked toward a cure. Today, we see those Guest Books together for the first time. We hope you’ll visit and help us honor them.

About Linnea

I joined in 2000 as an obituary writer. In the years since, I've done a little of everything for our Operations team, from content review to customer service to creating web pages for funeral homes to training new employees to my current position, Content Manager. I love this position, because I get to write little bits & longer pieces - whatever's needed at the moment - and I get to proofread a lot, satisfying my inner nitpicker. And I love being on the blog team, because I get to write interesting features for the blog. I love to write! In my spare time, I... can you guess?... write. I'm hoping that one day I can add "published novelist" to my bio. I also enjoy working in my vegetable garden and cooking, baking, canning, making ice cream, and pretty much anything else in the kitchen. I love to read, compete in trivia contests, and attempt to keep up with my Netflix queue.
