Showing off your pink pride during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a favorite thing to do with survivors and supporters alike, and that's also true in Bellevue.
Earlier this month, the American Cancer Society sponsored the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk that started at Bellevue Downtown Park. John Howie Steak and Seastar got into the act with the Kiss from A Rose cocktail to raise money for the Young Survival Coalition. And Gene Juarez Salons and Spas sponsored mammogram events at their salons throughout the Puget Sound area (including their flagship Bellevue store).
Of course, some people, like Bellevue resident , strive to make a difference for breast cancer patients year round.
Thousands of hats, shirts, and other pink breast cancer items are sold in October. Millions of tiny pink ribbons are worn to support the cure for breast cancer and hope for many women. Countless numbers of people show support of Breast Cancer Awareness through participating in fundraising events.
To show your pink pride at Breast Cancer Awareness events and around the community, print out the image of the attached Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon to show your support.
