The BREAST CANCER WARRIOR HEALING TREE
November 26, 2012 marks the beginning of the first Breast Cancer Warrior Healing Tree Holiday Event.
The “Healing Tree” – a ten-foot-tall Christmas tree adorned in Pink Lights -- will reside, for the duration of the Holiday Season, in the heart of the Oakway Center -- Eugene, Oregon’s premier boutique shopping center.
Everyone is invited to come to the Oakway Center to get a Pink Ribbon and on it, to write the name of the Breast Cancer Warrior (past or present) in their lives. All of those ribbons will be placed on the Healing Tree, where they will remain throughout the season.
The Healing Tree is intended to become a Holiday gathering place where local Breast Cancer Warriors can come to share their journey through ‘the parallel universe of Breast Cancer’.
In keeping with the Breast Cancer Warrior Foundation’s Mission to remove the barriers that currently prevent so many people from participating in Breast Cancer Clinical Trials, the Healing Tree will also become a Breast Cancer Clinical Trials Information Center during the Holiday season. Information regarding Breast Cancer Clinical Trials scheduled to take place in the region in the coming months will be available.
At 2pm on Sunday, December 23, the community will join in a circle around the Healing Tree to offer up prayers of love, hope, and strength for Breast Cancer Warriors and all who love or care for a Breast Cancer Warrior.
You need not live in Oregon to participate. Wherever you may be this Holiday Season, you too can share the energy of the Healing Tree.
On a 12-inch long Pink Ribbon, write the name of the Breast Cancer Warrior in your life and mail your ribbon to us. All Breast Cancer Warrior Ribbons received by December 22, 2012 will be placed on the Breast Cancer Warrior Healing Tree. Ribbons can be mailed to: The BCWF, 1292 High Street, Suite 150, Eugene, OR 97401.
There is no cost to have a Breast Cancer Warrior Ribbon placed on the Healing Tree, but donations are gratefully accepted (either by check – payable to the BCWF -- or online at: BreastCancerWarrior.net)
