Pink Out 2016

It’s October and that means it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Most families these days have been affected in some way by breast cancer and our family is one of them.  Breast cancer has impacted our family with both my grandmother and my sister-in-law’s father.   Sadly, Windy lost his fight against this disease.

Sarah decided she wanted to participate in the October Pink Out again this year.

While Sarah enjoys having the pink hair, I try to make her understand the main purpose is to help support breast cancer awareness.  All the proceeds from our hair salon’s Pink Out will go to help financially support a local woman currently fighting the battle against breast cancer.

Each year Sarah participates in honor of her great-grandmother and adds Nan to the tree with all the other names of those honored or remembered.

While we can’t understand why some have to go through the battle of cancer or why some win that battle on this side of heaven and others are healed in heaven itself, we can never stop praying for cures and healing, fighting through the battle, and supporting those walking such a difficult journey.
