Each season during the month of October, the Indianapolis Colts join with several organizations throughout central Indiana to highlight breast cancer awareness.

Tuesday night, the team was behind "Pamper Her Pink" day, giving ten deserving women fighting cancer a chance to relax. They all met up at the Colts Grille downtown after a day of luxury.

It's the first time Taneika McGuire, Brittany Seybold and Jean King have met. All three of them are battling cancer.

They talked about cancer during their manicures. Thanks to the Indianapolis Colts, these women were Pampered Pink at Tyler Mason Salon and Spa Tuesday afternoon.

"We feel strongly about women feeling beautiful inside and out," said Tammie Baker, Tyler Mason Salon and Spa.

"I have two little kids at home. It was nice to step away and be pampered after everything this year," said Brittany, who found out she had cancer earlier this year at age 28.

"I'm feeling great. I'm so blessed," said Jean King, who was the only one in the group to be able to sit in the chair and get her hair cut. Diagnosed with breast cancer in August of last year, she's winning her battle.

"We are all together. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Be positive. Always think positive. I think that's part of the battle," said King. "I have learned a lot of people are praying for us."

It's a chance for these women to know they're not fighting breast cancer alone.

"It's sad to hear someone else going through it at 28. But for me, it's rewarding to have someone," said Taneika McGuire.
