WASHINGTON, D.C. - The White House joined in on the fight against breast cancer by lighting up the President’s official residence pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The White House was lit up for one night on the Pennsylvania Ave. side of the house.

Jay Carney, White House spokesman, said starting next year, insurance companies will be banned from denying anyone coverage because of a pre-existing condition, including cancer.
