Click - Mellow Yellow for Bri

Click - Special Edition - Fundraiser for Bri

Bri is one of the 5% of women diagnosed with breast cancer under the age of 30. That was two and a half years ago. Now she is fighting for her life and this event is a combination of the usual Click photo collection and a fundraiser to assist with the astronomical medical bills that almost all cancer patients have to face. The money raised will also make it possible for Bri, a fellow food blogger, to look at some alternative healing modalities. She was a teen when she witnessed her own mother's unsuccessful fight against breast cancer, so just imagine her courage as she faces her own illness with grit and the will to live. Click on the link above to see how you can be part of the fundraiser.

Yellow has become a color associated with the fight against cancer, in large part due to the efforts of Lance Armstrong's LiveStrong events. The photo above is my entry in this special Click event...Mellow Yellow for Bri, because sometimes even a fighter has to be mellow for a time and bananas are pretty mellow...and yellow. Hang in there, Bri!

    You write beautifully about Bri. Seeing all the support from all of her fellow food bloggers is such an inspiration. And sometimes, just a banana is perfect.
