Medline and the Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, OR put together this awesome Pink Glove Dance video to promote breast cancer awareness. I love the positive approach to a serious issue.
Inspired by the hospital’s Pink Glove Dance, 17,200 people in Chicago last December participated in a concert/dance with Jay Sean. You can read more about this here as well as view that video.

Besides raising awareness about breast cancer, an impressive aspect of the hospital video are the actual hospital workers, no matter what job position is held. These are real people, not actors or professional dancers. The same people who probably diagnosed a woman with breast cancer earlier in the day or gently closed the eyes of someone who lost their cancer battle. It humanizes an otherwise amorphous medical framework in which breast cancer victims find themselves during their fight to survive.Breast cancer touches all our lives—it’s a real issue about real people just like you and me. So put on your pink gloves, turn on the music, and dance through your day.
