The Pink Ribbon

The pink ribbon has become an international symbol for breast cancer awareness. It is proudly worn or displayed to show support for those whose lives have been touched by the disease. I personally know 2 such women that have battled breast cancer, one of which lost her battle in the end. She was a great woman, very loving and kind, and who will be missed greatly by her friends and family. The other is a proud survivor, supporter of the fight, and volunteers to help others.

Cancer comes in all shapes and forms though. It does not discriminate based upon age, race, color, or creed. It can not be reasoned with, nor is it a friendly foe. It attacks with a vengeance from within, and it changes the lives of those who it affects.

I lost my wife to lung cancer in 2000, and my mother is a survivor of lymphoma, so I personally know how cancer impacts those close to us. It is a battle that is fought every minute of every day, and it takes its toll across all levels; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. It also brings people together, gives us strength to battle on, and nurtures the seeds of hope.

I personally, and with my business, help support the fight against cancer. One of the causes we support right here in our great state of Delaware is the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. The work they do is amazing, and is to be commended. To support with their cause, we have dedicated a portion of our sales till the end of March to help their effort. I personally will be adding to the contribution.

The time is now to try to find a cure. Are you with me Delaware?

About delaware302
Delaware 302 is more than an online clothing store. It's about giving Delawareans a way to express their pride about being from, or even just living in, the First State. Whether you're wearing it or displaying it on your vehicle - let the world see you are Delaware proud. But you don't have to be born here to "represent" the 302.
