Unite to Fight Breast Cancer

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My boyfriend's aunt recently passed away from cancer. Although it was not from Breast Cancer, she had it in the past.

This poster caught my eye:

Thursday, October 30th from 4-5:30 pm, in the Southern Illinois University Carbondale's Health Center Auditorium there is a very cool event.

Bra! Bra! Bra! Unite to Fight is the theme of the second annual "Be My Bra" Competition at SIU. Students are putting together their creative prowess towards designing the most outrageous, thought-provoking brassiere to convey their stand against breast cancer. REfreshments will be served.

bra: [n] Slang 1. Support 2. strength 3. friend. You can be part of a circle of support, whether or not you have been touched by breast cancer. It's about being a friend, a "bra". Ask. Help. Know. Inspire. Learn. Remind. Listen. Tell. Encourage.
