One of the local organizations we support on the Gulf Coast is a lovely group of women known as the Krewe du Ya Yas. They work tirelessly to raise awareness of breast cancer through events, parades, and fundraisers. They also assist economically challenged individuals to get the necessary tests that would detect breast cancer early.

They wear pink of course! That is to honor all women of the world and also everyone who has ever been touched in their lives by this horrible cancer. They also wear tiaras to show that all women can be princesses and queens in their day to day lives. The women live by the motto "Living, Laughing, and Loving".
