(WBIR - Greeneville) When Susan Crum-Teague found out she had breast cancer several weeks ago, her husband wanted to do a little something to cheer her up.

"My husband began decorating the front yard for fall," she said. "He surprised me with it."

When she left her house this week, she saw a display of some two dozen pumpkins... pumpkins painted in the color pink.

"I've never heard of pink pumpkins before," she added.

"I just had a wild idea to do the fall decorations," her husband, Scott Teague, said.

These painted pumpkins have garnered a lot of attention in Greeneville over the past few days. Some people traveled to their house just to see them in person.

The display of these unusual gourds came from the idea that the cancer Susan is facing is not just her battle. It's the family's fight.

"When we were first diagnosed, Scott coined it 'our pathway to recovery' and we talk that a lot -- our recovery," Susan said.

The display, while the size of a typical front deck, has a much deeper and bigger meaning attached, the mother of one added.

"Inspired me when I look out the window or walk outside and see these pink pumpkins. I'm reminded that it does take courage to be courageous..." she smiled.
