More than 200 employees of Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon recently went beyond simply wearing new pink gloves to spread the word about breast cancer awareness – they danced in them. And now their fun and touching video – “The Pink Glove Dance” – has become a hit on YouTube with more than 75,000 views within just a few days of posting.
“The Pink Glove Dance,” which features the artist Jay Sean’s hit song “Down,” includes employees from practically every area of the hospital from the CEO to nurses, doctors, cooks, cleaning services, lab technicians and even a cancer patient. Sean recently viewed the video and commented on his official website – http://www.jaysean.com.
“The vid is awesome...medicine will always be close to my heart and this is such a worthy and important cause. So maybe I could have been a doctor and a singer at the same time after all then!? Just Brilliant.”
According to his website, he gave up a career in medicine to follow his passion in music. However, he still has fond memories and admiration for those in the medical professions.
The pink gloves featured in the video were provided by Medline Industries, Inc., which recently introduced its new “Generation Pink” gloves. A portion of the sales from the gloves is going to fund mammograms for the underserved population. Based in Mundelein, Illinois, Medline is a manufacturer and distributor of healthcare supplies and the leading provider of exam gloves in the U.S.
