This is an altered photo of the Field of Women (Lotsa lovely pink ladies) created at the Caloundra (Qld) Abreast in Australia event where the breast cancer survivors of the world, who use dragonboating to deal with the side effects of their disease and to keep themselves fit, came together in a wonderful regatta.
It was a great occassion for the world to see what a great place and population Australia is!
The money paid for the sillhouettes (many times 50) supports services for women undergoing treatment.
The pink is highlighted as it was a feature of the regatta.
The dream of myself and the other women is to see a cure found for breast cancer (which may lead to cures for other cancers for the whole world).
Camera used was Sony Cybershot 4.1 post work done in a variety of free software and text update with PSE recently.
Thank you to the 50Things Group for featuring this pic. Hopefully it will increase people’s awareness of breast cancer thereby increasing women finding it early and surviving it.
