Pewaukee's Designer Races for the Cure

Milwaukee, WI- September 25, 2011

This past Sunday one of our Pewaukee designers, Lauren, made her way to the Susan G. Komen race for the cure. Read her story below.

The day may have started very dark and rainy, but when we finally made it downtown the horizon became bright pink. The rain had held off for a perfect morning for over 19,000+ participants ready to fight for
a cure.

The Susan G. Komen race for the cure is an annual walk for my family,
both my Mom and Nana are survivors. It is the time of year we all come
together to celebrate their victory while supporting those who are currently in their fight. This year was even more special because we were walking in honor for our friend Barb. She was diagnosed about a month ago and has been fighting strong every day since. It was emotional to watch Barb as she crossed the finish line with a handful of loved ones surrounding her. The millions of women just like Barb, push all of us at Bank of Memories & Flowers to fight even more during the month of October. Personally, the images of the thousands of people walking for their loved ones keeps me pushing for a cure.

During the month of October, we want to encourage our customers to spread awareness. It can be through ‘Fight Like a Girl’ apparel or purchasing our Petals for Hope arrangement which donates $5 to ABCD (After Breast Cancer Diagnosis) during the month of October at Please us help us give strength to as many women as possible.
