Monday, we held a survivor party!! We wanted to thank our 2008 survivors for participating in our Focused on a Cure campaign. It takes a lot of courage to tell such an emotional story and then to have it showcased for thousands of people to see. So, we wanted to honor these women!
The night started with snacks and refreshments. Then everyone took a seat for Renda and Karen to express their appreciation. To be honest, we've all learned so much through this experience and we wanted them to know.
We put together gift bags for the ladies. They had the opportunity to open their gifts and see all the goodies they received.
The ladies had an opportunity to meet and greet one another. They all had so many stories in common; it seemed like they had all been friends for years.
We want to thank everyone who donated to the party!
Bates Center (health material)
Breast Imaging Center (health material)

Laura Buckel with Arbonne (skincare samples)
Coldwater Creek (promise bracelet)
