The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Although many of us are working from remotely from our home offices, the Cornerstone Staff found some creative ways to raise awareness—social distancing style!
Christina and Jill purchased Pink Ribbon Bagels from Panera Bread. The Pink Ribbon Bagel is a chance to help the fight against breast cancer—with a portion of Pink Ribbon Bagel proceeds benefitting a local breast cancer organization. In the Newington, NH location, all proceeds went to Brigham & Women’s Cancer Center.
Adam participated in a virtual charity 5k benefitting the American Cancer Society – and sported a t-shirt passing a percentage of the profits to the Susan G. Komen breast cancer foundation. Adam came in second place—only one second behind first!
Brittany made her Cornerstone charitable contribution to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and commemorated two survivors in her life by making a ribbon for them (“Queen” Lisa and her mom Michele) at her indoor cycling studio.
Mackenzie donated to the “Pink Your Ride” car parade event in Damariscotta which was held on October 17th. The event invited community members to decorate their cars in pink and take rides to fight breast cancer.
Susan recently had a conversation with a breast cancer survivor and learned about its removal and reconstructive surgery, the cultural implications, follow up treatment and fear of the unknown.
