With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, we wanted to take the opportunity to pamper the survivors in our company.
With a little help from our fabulous friends at the locally lady owned clothing boutique Sarah Kate Boutique, we decided to doll these ladies up and give them a photo shoot they’d never forget. Take a look at how lovely and strong these women are in the gallery to the left!
Pegi Davis, a Broker/REALTOR here at Bluewater Emerald Isle Real Estate office, is celebrating being a 25 year survivor this year! Andrea Wiley works in our Annual Rentals Department and battled her Breast Cancer while continuing to work extremely hard and is celebrating her second year as a Breast Cancer Survivor! Both ladies fought hard to beat Breast Cancer, as well as Sandra Goodman who is celebrating 17 years of being cancer free, Julie Perry and Linda Strickland, who are also Breast Cancer Survivors, but unfortunately had prior commitments for the photo shoot.
As a token of our appreciation for their fight with Breast Cancer, we gave all the ladies in our company that have conquered the disease these beautiful Rae Dunn SURVIVOR mugs. We’re giving away a few of these on our Facebook page as well- Click the button below to nominate a survivor to win!
Did you know: About 1 in 8 women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
Early detection is key to the treatment. Mammograms are important screening tests that can identify breast cancer up to two years before you or even your doctor can feel a tumor. It’s recommended that women over the age of 40 should have a mammogram once a year, and those with a strong family history should have one, plus an MRI annually starting at the age of 30.
