The Colors of Cancer

A colleague at work, also a photographer, sent this graphic along to me this morning. Everyone seems to be wearing pink or a pink ribbon this month because it is breast cancer awareness month. Now we know what ribbons of other colors signal. Tomorrow for lunch, I'll be at the Swedish Hospital Women's Wellness Lunch, at a table hosted by my colleague and friend, Julie, a breast cancer survivor. She's really at the genesis of my commitment to raise funds for breast cancer. Her graceful and heart-felt good example left a deep imprint on me and everyone else she has worked with. I've walked in her honor for two years, and will do it again next year.
