Broadcaster Miriam O'Callaghan is urging the country to get their rollers out and paint the streets pink for breast cancer awareness.

The mother-of-eight helped to launch the Irish Cancer Society's 'Paint It Pink' campaign yesterday, as October is breast cancer awareness month. Her sister died after a cancer battle several years ago.

TV3's Triona McCarthy, who also lost her sister to the disease, joined her to launch the fundraising and awareness raising initiative.

This Friday marks the 'Paint It Pink Day' and volunteers around the country will take to the streets to sell ribbons and pins in order the raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society.
