Pink Ribbon Celebration!
Our Pink Day!
Saturday, October 14th we celebrated women and Breast Cancer Survivors with our first annual Pink Ribbon Celebration. It was a day dedicated to our survivors, a day of education and a day of celebrating women. Over 20 business partners provided food, door prizes and education – from natural and organic products to jewelry for a cause to make up makeovers to professional head shots all celebrating our “Pink Ladies!”
We had tears… tears of joy… tears of hope… tears of support… tears of friendship. We learned from our speaker, Dr. Robert Buresh (Vicky’s husband)about the importance of exercise and why exercising is so protective at warding off breast cancer and other health issues. We listened as Bonnie Ross Parker shared how to be S.A.F.E. when going through or supporting someone with breast cancer. Plus we heard stories from the heart from husbands of survivors, family of survivors and the survivors themselves.
We sampled tasty and healthy edibles that demonstrate how food can be healthy and medicinal! We learned about thermography verses “that other traditional imaging technique”as well as how essential oils, non-toxic cleaning, clean water and immune products are a part of preventative measures that make a difference in breast health.
We bought wine and contributed to a great cause – “Cleaning for a Reason.” This organization, in which Maid in America is partnered with, provides free house cleaning to women undergoing cancer treatment.
Overall, the day was a beautiful Pink Ribbon Celebration and sure to be an annual celebration!
