October - THINK PINK!
as you already know, OCTOBER is well known as Breast Cancer awareness month.
Yesterday (October 1st) there was a PINK RIBBON WALK here in Singapore and a group of us got together to create a group that was called the PINK GLOBE TROTTERS. There were 31 of us in this group for the walk ... and we all had such fun as you will see by the following images taken around Marina Bay in Singapore yesterday.
Most of Singapore got into the swing of things and coloured some of the bridges PINK as well as the Singapore Flyer. I didn't manage to capture any of the flyer unfortunately!
Yesterday everyone was there for a reason ..... be it to support "Cancer Awareness", in memory of a family member, to support a loved one, a friend, their carers, for their partners or for themselves. Everyone was there as a group to support each other for whatever reason.
This was my first attempt at being part of any Breast Cancer Awareness activity, I have kept away from them in the past as I have found them to be too emotional for me to deal with. But 10 years have now past since my diagnoses of breast and lymph cancer, so its time for me to show support to others and to pass on the message that we can survive.
Please remember that breast cancer is not just for women!
We were there to support everyone that has been touched by cancer at some time.
we sure had fun yesterday
and never have I seen so many smiling faces all in one place!!
