As Seen on WQOW

The new bridge lights at Phoenix Park were on display this weekend in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

From 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. on Saturday the bridge looked pretty in pink, thanks to a local reconstructive plastic surgeon. 

Dr. Clint Merrick, of Merrick Plastic and Hand Surgery, sponsored the bridge's first special light display as a tribute to breast cancer survivors and those still searching for a cure. 

“Every October, I look for ways to help raise awareness for breast cancer in the Chippewa Valley and beyond, and lighting the bridge will be a beautiful new way to do that,” Dr. Merrick said. 

If you missed Saturday's display, the pink lights will be turned back on on Sunday from 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m. The lights on the bridge were lit officially for the first time on Thursday night.

Dr. Merrick is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in disorders of the hand and general plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. His goal is to help every patient find solutions to their health and wellness concerns. Dr. Merrick has offices in Eau Claire, Cumberland, Hayward, Ladysmith, and Shell Lake.
