Pink Ribbon Breakfast for Breast Cancer Research
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month world wide. The pink ribbon symbolises hope and awareness for those affected by breast cancer. The Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation is having another Pink Ribbon Breakfast campaign this year. Friends, family and workmates will gather together in homes, offices, pubs and parks, to celebrate the achievements of breast cancer research and raise funds for further research. The pink theme gives a sense of festival. Pink eggs, pink clothes, pink hair and pink decorations.
My friend Leigh is hosting one of these brekkies on Sunday October 23 at the Breakfast Creek Hotel in Brisbane Queensland. Her all-female jazz band BZAZZ is set to entertain from 8.00 am. Some of the band members have had breast cancer and their music is an inspiring celebration of survival.
Leigh thought that one of my pink crochet bucket hats designed especially for chemo patients would make a good raffle prize. I finished it yesterday and entrusted it to USPS and Australia Post to get it there safely and on time. The hat features a white frangipani.....it's my flower of choice. I still call Australia home and beautiful frangipanis abound in sunny Queensland.
