PINK

When I saw Jodi's contest promoting breast cancer awareness I knew I had to participate.  While I have not personally been near breast cancer, my favorite aunt died of lymphoma several years ago, so I get excited to promote any cancer research.  It is a scary disease even for those in the trenches doing the research.  I took a molecular biology of cancer class my last year at BSU and it was depressing.  Even the most advanced therapies and treatments have a poor outlook.  Like 6 months on one drug, 3 months on the next, and a few weeks on the last (leading to death not a cure).  Yes there are many cancers that can be caught early, removed, treated etc, but there are even more that continue to be baffling.
Rawr!
If I can help even one person pay attention to their health and detect cancer early then my job here is not done, but successful.

I decided to see how much pink I could pull off without adding ribbon and such.  Unsurprisingly I have lots of pink stuff.
-bonnet
-browband
-bell boots
-Polos
-saddle towel
-breeches
-helmet
-gloves
and I added a pink sweatshirt.  LOL all you want, pink makes me smile and smiles are important!  Poor P-diddy didn't seem too keen on smiling.  I used lipstick to draw the ribbon in his blaze and then put some on myself so I could give him a pink kiss on his nose.  Upon trying to scrub the lipstick off I turned his entire blaze pink!

Luckily he doesn't have a mirror in his stall!
I think he should always have lipstick kisses

Believe it or not this was made years ago, perfect for a breast cancer photo shoot

Peace out cancer
