(WZZM) - You could soon help raise awareness of breast cancer just by driving around town.

In December, the state legislature passed a bill that would create a pink ribbon license plate in Michigan.

Not only does it allow you to show your support of cancer patients and survivors, it also raises money for a good cause.

State Senator Glenn Anderson introduced the bill in the Michigan Senate. He and Paulette Valliere with the Michigan Department of Community Health spoke about the new plate.
