Journal of Hope

Posted Mar 01 2013 1:22pm
Here at the Pink Ribbons Project office we have a wide array of education and awareness programs including -  Pink Alive, Pink Aware, Pink Paint, Drink Pink, etc…

One of my personal favorites is Pink Aware – a traveling dance program and performance titled “Journal of Hope”!  Pink Ribbons Project presents a 30 minute demonstration that uses dance and art as the vehicles to introduce the topic of breast health awareness!  The program brings a message of breast health, self-care and well-person awareness to teens AND adults, both male and female.

The program is performed by students from Houston Ballet’s Ben Stevenson Academy and is followed by a short lecture from a medical professional.  “Journal of Hope” tells the story of one woman’s journey through breast cancer and… well,  I won’t spoil the surprise by telling you too many details but it is one that can touch many hearts!

I have seen the performance time and time again and it never fails… I tear up every time!  The dancers are just fabulous and the story hits close to home even for those who do not have a famiy history of breast cancer.

Cheers!
