    The annual “Feed Your Pink Side” Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon will be from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Dee J. Kelly Alumni and Visitors Center.|

    State senator Wendy Davis will speak at the event, along with a panel of three breast cancer survivors and their children, said Anne Barrett, administrative assistant to Ann Louden, TCU Chancellor’s associate for external relations.

    Louden,who is also the chairwoman of the TCU Frogs for the Cure Committee, will moderate as the survivors and their children answer questions about cancer and its effect on their lives. Barrett said the luncheon is full, with over 150 faculty and staff having made reservations.

    Frogs for the Cure is in its sixth year and all events surrounding cancer awareness this month will lead up to the TCU football game against BYU Oct. 16. All proceeds from the events will go toward cancer research, Barrett said.
