We’re participating in Oregon Cancer Foundation’s 2020 Bras For Cause campaign! This is a campaign that encourages Lane County residents to build bras and enter them into a competition. Community members can then view all the bras online and vote for their favorites. Each vote is $1 and voting closes October 31, 2020 at midnight. All proceeds go to help fund Oregon Cancer Foundation’s various support programs and stop gap funds. Go check out the bras and vote for one of ours!
Here are some of the bras that our team members and their families created and a short description about their inspirations.
“Wrapped in Love,” Eva Ingalls, Age 6
Eva’s gentle spirit is always lifting up those around her, reminding them of their worth and her love. She makes paper hearts for family and friends and wanted to create a bra that celebrates these little reminders that love is all around us.
“Spring” by Lily Clark, Age 9
Lily wanted her bra to reflect growth and beauty so she chose gentle pinks and flowers. Soft lights give the glow of the springtime sun that brings life and helps beauty arise from ashes.
“Mermaid” by Briella Clark, Age 12
Briella wanted to create a bra that is reminiscent of a mermaid. The vision is of a creature that is both beautiful and strong. The scales also reflect light back out into the world.
“Glow with the Flow” by Gina Mullen
Jellyfish symbolize longevity, immortality, tenacity and adaptability. They move with the ocean current and their bioluminescence allows them to glow in the dark. Gina felt this amazing creature represents the spirit of breast cancer survivors and dedicates this bra to Jenni Morrow.
“A Light in Darkness” by NW Surgical Specialists
As if breast cancer isn’t a big enough fight, 2020 has brought even more challenges that feel at times overwhelming. NWSS wanted to bring light into the darkness of our current time – both celebrating the light of survivors amongst us and as a nod to the light we want to be for you in your breast cancer journey. Our theme of light centered on the universe and the light that stars, comets, and meteors can bring in a dark sky. We incorporated surgical thread for stitching to symbolize the healing of the surgeries we perform. We ask you to donate to Oregon Cancer Foundation so that it can continue to be a light in our community.
