Barrington’s Abby Gage joins Advocate Health Care & Chicago Bulls to #PinkOut United Center, Raise Breast Cancer Awareness


Abby Gage Pinks Out

Barrington resident and Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital breast cancer survivor, Abby Gage, joined dozens of other Illinois breast cancer survivors, fighters and family members to help #PinkOut for Breast Cancer Awareness at the United Center Monday. This is the fourth consecutive year that Advocate and the Bulls have honored those affected by breast cancer, a disease that approximately one in eight women develop during their lifetime.

Abby never thought she would get breast cancer – it doesn’t run in her family, she receives routine mammograms, she eats healthy and works out.

In February this mother of two plus a yellow lab heard the terrible news. Abby had breast cancer. With the support of her family, radiation therapists, physicians and nurses, Abby is now cancer free!

Abby celebrated the United Center #PinkOut along with  her family, her Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital radiation therapists, or “radiation warriors” as she calls them, and her nurse navigator.

During the #PinkOut, fans entering the stadium received pink Advocate breast cancer t-shirts. Bulls ambassadors, broadcasters, coaches and members of Bulls Entertainment incorporated pink into their wardrobes, as did Benny the Bull and the Luvabulls. All Bulls players wore special #CheckYourGirls pink shootaround apparel graphics and both the United Center and Advocate Center incorporated pink lighting elements and signage.


Located at 450 W. Highway 22 in Barrington, Illinois, Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital is an acute care facility with more than 700 physicians representing 50 medical specialties. With a nationally-recognized cancer program, renowned cardiac care and an extensive range of outpatient services, Good Shepherd Hospital is part of Advocate Health Care, named one of the Top Ten hospital systems in the U.S. by Thomson-Reuters.
