Maggie Roth hopes there will be as many pink pumpkins adorning doorsteps this fall as orange ones.
The sophomore member of the Holcomb FFA Chapter in Kansas has been working with the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation to help raise awareness and join in the fight against breast cancer. Roth says breast cancer research is an important cause to her, and once she found the foundation’s website, she knew she wanted to be a part of it.
“I believe that at some point in life, everyone is affected by cancer,” she says. “Whether it is someone they know, a friend of a friend or themselves, it’s a big deal.”
