ARE YOU TOUGH ENOUGH TO WEAR PINK ?



TOUGH ENOUGH TO WEAR PINK
was created by entrepreneur and breast cancer survivor Terry Wheatley to bring the
sport of PROFESSIONAL RODEO and the western community together to rally against BREAST CANCER.
*
Since its inception in 2004, TETWP has empowered rodeos and western events in the U.S. and Canada to focus attention on the need for a cure.

To date, the campaign has raised $5 MILLION DOLLARS for breast cancer charities, much of which stays right in the community. The grassroots movement has inspired other sports communities to mount their own TETWP campaigns, spreading a message of hope and support that reaches beyond the rodeo arena to competitors, families and fans across America.

"PAINTED LADIES..."
AWESOME !!!
YOU BEAUTIFUL LADIES....
You bring tears of gratitude to my eyes every time I see you...
THANK YOU
for all you do to SUPPORT finding THE CURE.....
*

Nearly 200,000 women in the US are diagnosed with breast cancer every year and is the most common form of cancer in women. That number is way too high. Chances are either you or someone you know has dealt with this disease.
************
My love and honor go out to all the women (and men) who HAVE breast cancer, HAVE HAD it in the past and now are a BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR, or KNOW SOMEONE who is fighting this DREADED AND HORRIBLE DISEASE that has taken so many of our sisters and brothers...
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY WITH ME that the CURE is just right around the corner....

Please GOD...show our doctors and researchers THE WAY TO THE CURE.

joey said...

Fabulous post. It really got me thinking. I go for a mamogram once a year and it's FREE. I can't believe that in the USA you have to pay $ 500.00 ! it's not fair ! I will stop complaining every time I have to go to have one done !
Many hugs and blessings, joey

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello BJ~this unfortunate disease has affected too many friends and family members. Whenever it's a choice between purchasing a "pink" product I'll reach for pink every time. every little bit will add up to the bigger and better outcome if we all pitch in.

After seeing your delicious German pancakes I figured out what I was doing wrong with mine...now they're great.

We've had a few baby roses bloom, but it's too early for the standard roses. So, I enjoyed seeing your beautiful coral roses.
Sweet wishes,
Sara

Hey ya! Thanks for coming by! Amen to your prayer for the cure for cancer. Even for better drugs to get through it. Love your coral roses. Thank the Lord for the rains and the blossoms they brought. My roses are shutting down - it's already been hot. We had a good rain last night! Yeah! Our ground is so cracked. I'm sure the roses don't like it that dry. THanks, Jenn Happy Pink Saturday!
