For Breast Cancer Awareness month, we went in search of people and places that instill hope, promote awareness, and inspire us. Our first stop? Charleston, South Carolina’s Waterfront Park. The water in the fountain is dyed pink, making it stunning day and night. We felt the warmth and love the moment we laid eyes on it. Where do you #FindHope?
“I find hope every time I walk the beach. It resets my zen.” –Christel W.
This is brilliant. The Empire State Building took pink to a whole new level with a dazzling lightshow. That warm and fuzzy feeling you’re feeling? Yeah, we’re feeling it too. Time to call our sisters and watch An Affair to Remember or Sleepless in Seattle, again.
“I find hope in laughter, my favorite sound in the world. I found out I had cancer when I was at Disney World. The doctor called and wanted me to come in so we could talk. I said, ‘Just tell me now. I’m on vacay.’ When he asked if I was alone and somewhere comfortable, I said, ‘Doctor, I’m in the happiest place in the world with all the people I love most in the world.’ He told me I had cancer and what my options were. I told my mom, dad, brother, sister-in-law, my kids and nieces. Then we went on Space Mountain!” — Jodi E., Breast Cancer Survivor
“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” — Audrey Hepburn.
So many of us here at Soma find hope in our gardens. Getting back to nature renews the spirit. Here in Holland, this magnificent sea of tulips makes us smile. The symmetry is calming and the dreams are flowing.
The color on the White House says it all: Women are important. Please remind your sisters, mothers, wives, girlfriends and coworkers to get screened. We want them to be around for a very long time.
“I find hope in my daughter; she’s the only thing that keeps me going. I don’t want to miss out on a minute of watching her grow! She makes me laugh, even when I thought I couldn’t.” — Maribeth J., Breast Cancer Survivor
The love and support in this human pink ribbon reminds us: We’re Stronger Together. Thanks to our sister brand, White House Black Market, for supporting the cause.
The world’s biggest symbol of love actually made us blush. Dressed in pink for Breast Cancer Awareness, we think it never looked better. As it sparkled like never before, we reflected on all the wonderful women affected by breast cancer that have touched our lives from customers and coworkers to family and friends. They are the real symbols of strength and love. Knowing them inspires us to strive to make women’s lives better every day. Please join us in our commitment to help support women Living Beyond Breast Cancer. Find out how at soma.
