One of the most rewarding aspects of this journey I've been on is feeling that I may be able to impact the lives of women around me, just by sharing my story. Today I simply want to invite you to join me at two upcoming events, specific to the causes that I hold so dear. If you, or someone you know, could benefit from either of these, please pass along the info. It’s my hope that by continuing to share my journey, and the groups and people around me that have helped me along the way, I could help at least one other person. Happy Monday, all! TOMORROW, Tuesday, July 29 at 6 p.m. Bright Pink Cincinnati presents the next experimental outreach event at The Art of Entertaining!
Bright Pink is the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, while providing support for high-risk individuals. Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it? And what’s even more awesome is that they put on these really cool, free events for high-risk women, and they have just recently started a group in Cincinnati! I personally have been to one of the previous events and can say it really is a special group to be involved with. This event is at The Art of Entertaining and will be an interactive cooking class, along with a time to chat with other young women about being young and at high risk.
Details: When: Tuesday, July 29, 6-8 p.m. Where: 2019 Madison Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45208 (in O’Bryanville) Who: Young women (ages 18-45) who are at high-risk/have a family history of breast & ovarian cancer Cost: FREE RSVP: To Community@BeBrightPink.org. Have questions? Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can make sure your questions get to the right individual. More info on Bright Pink can be found here
