October is known for a variety of special events. Fall is at its peak and the leaves are changing and falling. Families are preparing for Halloween and other fall-themed adventures. On a more serious note, October is also the month that we set aside to show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer affects 1 in 8 women and 1 in 833 men in the U.S. Odds are, we’ve all had someone in our lives who has battled with breast cancer. This month is a time to get together to reflect, celebrate, and give back. Breast Cancer Awareness brings individuals, communities, and businesses together to show their support.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month was founded in 1985. Since then, the month of October has been dedicated to raising funds for research into the cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cures of breast cancer. Support for Breast Cancer Awareness is often shown by wearing or displaying the pink ribbon. While used loosely at first, in 1993, the pink ribbon was officially adopted as the symbol of this awareness movement. Since then, the pink ribbon has long been a symbol for those who wish to show their support for this important movement. Breast Cancer continues to be a leading cancer in women, and with awareness and support, research can continue to improve the chances of beating this invasive cancer.
Showing your support can come in a variety of ways. At Flower Works, we believe in the healing properties of flowers. Flowers bring joy that can be enjoyed for a long time. Receiving flowers also shows that someone was thinking of you. If someone in your life has been impacted by this disease, showing you care could be as simple as sending a bouquet of flowers. Flowers are special for a number of reasons. They are meant to be cherished and cared for. Receiving flowers is a small gesture that can mean the world for those who have survived, and for those still fighting. At Flower Works, we’ve always believed in the message that a simple flower arrangement can send.
To show our support, we are offering a "Pink Ribbon Special Bouquet" through the month of October. This floral arrangement consists of half a dozen pink roses accented with mixed greens. Since ancient times, roses have been grown for their fragrance, beauty, and healing. They are a symbol of achievement, completion, and perfection. In general, pink roses are used to demonstrate appreciation and gratitude. When it comes to Breast Cancer Awareness, we couldn’t think of a more perfect flower to represent the power in pink. We carefully arrange the roses for you, finishing the arrangement with a pink ribbon tied around the vase. This is the perfect gift for friends or family in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
At Flower Works, we are honored to be part of such a tight-knit community. We take pride in taking care and showing support for our community. We know that we encounter individuals each day who have been impacted by breast cancer one way or another. We want to continue to show our support, and we hope that our Pink Ribbon Bouquet will bring light into the receiver’s life.
We love our small-town community, and we believe in the importance of Breast Cancer Awareness. We believe in the power of flowers and their ability to better someone’s day. They represent something so much larger than themselves. Stop into our shop or contact us to schedule a pick-up or delivery time that would work best for your schedule.
