National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas held their annual balloon release last week in honor of breast cancer survivors and patients who have lost their lives to the disease.
Staff and other hospital personnel gathered outside of the women’s center to release more than 160 pink and white balloons in honor of these patients. Each balloon cost $1 and all proceeds benefitted the Breast Cancer Research Center.
I was thrilled to attend this event, as my grandmother is a breast cancer survivor. The ceremony was extremely moving and I felt honored to be around such strong and inspirational women.
