Pink Fountain-Please Read!

Last year at this time, I had a friend who was dying from triple negative breast cancer. Her name was Lisa Fiatte. She was 31 years old, a mother of two children, a beloved sister, daughter and friend....... A group of her friends, myself included, gathered at the "pink" fountain on North Oak and Vivion to take a group photo to send Lisa a message that we were here to support her. We gathered bright and early in the morning and it was SO cold that I couldn't feel my fingers. We gathered in the place that Lisa loved. She wanted to take her family portraits in front of the pink fountain. Unfortunately Lisa did not get to have those portraits taken. She was too sick and in too much pain. She passed away in November of last year.

The same group of people who came out to the fountain last year are gathering again this year. This time, we want to raise money for breast cancer research and we want to donate it in Lisa's name. Please think about joining us! Wear pink if you have it and consider donating $5 or more. We will meet on Saturday, October 16th, and the group photo will be taken promptly at 9:15am. If you know someone that has fought or is fighting breast cancer, make a sign in their honor to hold during the photo. I am also offering a FREE portrait in front of the fountain to anyone wearing pink. These photos will be made available for download for all participants. All I ask is that you wear pink and you donate whatever you can to our breast cancer fund in Lisa's name. ALL of the money donated will go directly to breast cancer research. If you would like to request a time earlier than 9am to have a family photo, please let me know. I'm willing to come earlier and/or stay a little later.

Please spread the word and join us:
October 16th at 9am
