After a three-year hiatus, the Port St. Lucie Business Women joined forces, forming a team of walkers, and proudly sponsoring a water station at the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk held on October 22 in Tradition. “Surviving and Thriving” was the theme that united 15 Port St. Lucie Business Women and their family members and friends, several of whom are survivors themselves.

Clusters of pink and lavender flowers were chosen to depict the theme of surviving and thriving in the Port St. Lucie Business Women’s custom team T-shirt, designed by Business Women member Diane Gallagher of DSG Designs & Photography.

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in American women and the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Due to improvements in treatment and early detection, there has been a 40 percent decline in breast cancer deaths since 1985. Funds raised from Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has funded breakthrough research, provided free rides to cancer patients, wigs free of charge to women, and other support services, access to lifesaving screenings, and so much more. The Port St. Lucie Business Women is proud to support the American Cancer Society’s search for a cure, education and outreach.

The Port St. Lucie Business Women is a 42-year-old, 501 (c) (6) non-profit professional organization dedicated to promoting the interests of businesswomen and serving our community effectively. For more information, visit PSLBW.com.
