Mosaic Monday: Bras Across the Kaw

10:20 AM , 0 Comments

Hundreds of bras line the bridge over the Kaw river in Lawrence, KS each October in an installation entitled, "Bras Across the Kaw".  Last year I was able to snap a few photos of some of the many hundred bras that were donated to promote breast cancer awareness month and women's health.

Health Care Access Clinic of Lawrence, KS serves low-income Douglas County residents and provides much needed health care to the many uninsured that would otherwise go without.  Shelly Wakeman, the clinic director was quoted in a recent Kansas City Star article promoting the 2013 installation.

"The whole purpose is to catch people's attention and, if they're a woman, hopefully get them to schedule their mammogram.  Or, if they're a man who loves a woman, to get them to encourage her to schedule one." 

We have all been touched by cancer in some way either personally or we have a family member or friend that has been effected.  It's so important that we rally together and support those battling cancer and those who are fighting along side their loved ones.  I have a grandmother that is a breast cancer survivor.  She is fighting a different cancer battle know like so many people and could use your prayers of healing and strength during this time.

Each mosaic is unique and has it's own story to tell.
