October is all about pink in support of breast cancer awareness. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, one in eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer. Men also can get this disease.
To show support for this fight against breast cancer, members of the DeSoto Civic Garden Club recently displayed their support for cancer patients and survivors by going pink in planting flower beds at the Sacred Heart School in Southaven. Pink tulips were planted in one of the beds and daffodils and hyacinths in the other. In another area of the flower beds, the breast cancer logo with a small flower and small pink (painted) pumpkin were added.
The DeSoto Civic Garden Club is a member of the National Garden Clubs, Inc., Deep South Garden Clubs, Inc., and The Garden Clubs of Mississippi, Inc., Hills and Delta District.
