Flowers given to women testing for breast cancer
October 25, 2010
A clinic in Asheville, North Carolina, was recently giving out free mammogram screenings to women without medical insurance in honor of the breast cancer awareness initiative, Ladies Night Out, according to Ashville's Citizen Times.
The women who went to the clinic on Thursday night to get tested for breast cancer were greeted at the door with a choice between pink carnations or roses.
The flower gesture was meant to reduce nerves and lighten the mood, "We want to make these women feel as relaxed and calm as possible - always with respect - and greet them like family members," said Linda Culbertson, a Ladies Night volunteer. And it appeared to have worked -
in hand, the women were smiling proudly, reports the news source.
The clinic offered mammograms, health education and other tests for uninsured and underinsured women in Buncombe County, all provided free of charge by Asheville Imaging, Mission Hospital's Breast Program and nurses from Buncombe's County Health Center.
Pink roses are the official flower for Breast Cancer Awareness, according to ThinkBeforeYouPink.com. Pink
are often given as a symbol for one's support for the fight against the disease.
