I ♥ Faces "Pink Week"

It is {PINK} week at I ♥ Faces:honoring breast cancer awareness month.
Although I would love to have a face in my photo entry...this week, it was not a requirement.


I took this photo last week on the 9th Street bridge in Winfield.

According to the Winfield Daily Courier, USDA members hung the bras a couple weeks ago as part of a Bridging Awareness with 'Bras for the Cause' event. Over 600 bras from all over Kansas were donated and hung on the bridge by a local breast cancer survivor and her friends.


I am dedicating this weeks photo to my Grandma Patsy (Mamo). She is currently fighting breast cancer for the second time in her life. Mamo is a beautiful, spunky and strong woman, with a lot of courage. Please say a little prayer for her, and everyone who suffers from this horrible disease.

  24. Congrats on top ten. You deserve it. I had heard of this bridge in the news and was thinking it would make a cool picture. I searched it only to find it was in Winfield and I'm in MN. I'm glad someone nearby took advantage and did it really well.
