U.S. Postal workers have been wearing pink shirts while making their deliveries to raise awareness about breast cancer.

In shirts that read "Carry on the Fight, “11 postal workers are delivering the mail around the city.

One postal worker says she really wants to spread the message about performing basic self-exams after she got breast cancer at 32-years old.

"We are trying to bring awareness for breast cancer and right now. Today is Paint the Town Pink in Chippewa, so we're all wearing pink to bring the awareness,” said Annette Manor.

Manor finished her treatment before starting at the post office in 1993 and has been cancer free ever since.

The post office is also selling a breast cancer stamps throughout the year for 60-cents, with 11-cents going towards the fight against breast cancer.
