FRIENDSHIP ON THE FENCE
This October, we hope you will enjoy our first installation of Friendship on the Fence. An effort to show the volume of people impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis and what the power of friendship and community can do.
WHAT: During the month of October, Gilda’s Club will host a bra art installation along the fence at its Royal Oak location. Come experience – and add to – a moving tribute that not only raises awareness for breast cancer but also shines a light on the invaluable emotional and social support services provided for all types of cancer at Gilda’s Club.
WHO: Each bra on display represents an individual whose life has been touched by a breast cancer diagnosis. Bras are hung by survivors, those who love and those who've lost. Those who choose may share their personal cancer story on a dedicated website celebrating Legacy. Courage. Hope.
We invite all who have been impacted to bring a bra and leave it on our fence line. As bras collect, we hope this will shed light on the fact that no one has to face a diagnosis alone and that through the community at Gilda's Club, we are stronger than cancer.
WHERE: Gilda’s Clubhouse - Royal Oak: 3517 Rochester Rd. Royal Oak, MI 48073
Gilda's Club locations in Detroit and St. Clair Shores will also be collecting bras and stories from members and the local community to contribute to the art installation. Staff will make sure these contributions make it to the fence.
WHEN: Throughout the month of October. The reveal event will be on October 2nd, 2023. Enjoy light refreshments and community as we come together to honor those impacted by breast cancer.
