Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month

Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month
Noticed a couple of these beautiful Poppies when I was at the Saskatoon Farm on 28 September 2013 with my youngest daughter and two of the participants in her photography group. So good to still see some garden flowers in bloom, as October was only a couple of days away. Pink is the colour associated with Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October).

"Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) (also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM)) is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer. As well as providing a platform for breast cancer charities to raise awareness of their work and of the disease, BCAM is also a prime opportunity to remind women to be breast aware for earlier detection.

In 1993 Evelyn Lauder, Senior Corporate Vice President of the Estée Lauder Companies founded The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and established the pink ribbon as its symbol, though this was not the first time the ribbon was used to symbolize breast cancer. In the fall of 1991, the Susan G. Komen Foundation had handed out pink ribbons to participants in its New York City race for breast cancer survivors." From Wikipedia.

An excellent shot and terrific lighting and details Anne ... impressive pastel colours and clarity ... a perfect reminder that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month ... an insidious disease that affects so many people world wide ... maybe one day this will be a thing of the past!!

Thanks so much, Art! Whenever I post a Think Pink image, I always have your words in my mind - I know your thoughts on this subject - but decided to still post the info : )

Beautiful lighting on this pretty poppy Anne! It is a colour I haven't seen much - usually I have seen orange or yellow or red or white. I did see some purple poppies at my aunt's place last summer which is similar to this lovely pink you found. This is a great photo to remind us of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
