John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Wordless Wednesday - Pink Flowers for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Wordless Wednesday - Pink Flowers for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is breast cancer awareness month and pink should be everywhere to remind us of the importance of early detection and treatment. My Mom had a double mastectomy, so this is a cause very dear to my heart. These pretty flowers grow wild in our Florida grass and my wife Marla transplanted some for our screen room.

Pink Flowers

We have a hibiscus bush that produces mostly yellow flowers but this pink one just blossomed as if in tribute.

Please support your local efforts to bring awareness to this devastating and deadly desease.

Thumbs up John.  Great reminder for all.  Breast Cancer can affect both men & women.

Kerrie - Maybe flowers know more than we think :-)

Gloria - My wife won't let me cut the grass untill they are finished blooming!

Laura - We're going right from extreme heat to the cold. What ever happened to perfect weather?

Debi - One day we may be able to eradicate this desease and all others. The only way that can happen is if we are aware and care.
