To go along with that, Racing to Ride is hosting a "ponies in pink" contest. With that in mind I dressed Benny up this afternoon and we took some photos. Some breast cancer survivors are bothered by "Pinktober." Let's face, there's nothing fluffy and pink about having cancer or going through treatments. At the same time, I really don't have a problem with something that brings increased awareness and research dollars to finding a real cure for cancer. Through my style show event I met a lady who has metastatic breast caner. She was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer 7 years ago and then earlier this year she discovered that it had metastasized. According to an article she shared, 3 out of 10 women diagnosed with early stage breast cancer will progress to metastatic breast cancer. How uncool is that!?
I could use your help in picking which photo to submit.
