“Patients and survivors of breast cancer are truly courageous individuals,” says Perry Fisher, firm founder and partner. “We decided to call it Park Pink and invite other local business owners to join us as we honor these amazing individuals and promote breast cancer awareness.”

According to the North Carolina Division of Public Health, more than 6,000 women in the state are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. One out of every eight women in the state could develop breast cancer, the second leading cause of cancer deaths for North Carolina women. Breast cancer has no guaranteed method of prevention, but healthy living and regular screenings can reduce the risk and allow for early detection. Women should consult their physician to determine their risk and screening options.

“If you’re a breast cancer survivor or patient, parking is one less thing that you have to worry about for the month of October,” says Brad Stark, firm partner. “Working and living in Western North Carolina is a wonderful experience. We love the sense of community that exists on both personal and professional levels. We hope that Park Pink will encourage breast cancer patients and survivors to enjoy some of the great local establishments here in downtown Asheville. ”

Park Pink will take place from October 1 through October 31. Fisher Stark will make available two outdoor parking spaces as part of our Park Pink program. These pink-colored spaces will be available to those visiting downtown Asheville who have survived or are currently being treated for breast cancer. Parking spaces will be available on a first-come basis. Fisher Stark, P.A. is located at 172 Asheland Avenue.
