Pink Is More Than a Color
EACH YEAR, 35-40 WOMEN ARE DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST CANCER IN THE YAMPA VALLEY
The Bust of Steamboat organization exists to assist these women with financial and emotional support during a very stressful time in their lives. It’s this passion for helping local women that prompts Billo to get involved and support as well.
Over 22 years, Bust of Steamboat has given funds to UC Health for a new chemotherapy chair and contributed to the purchase of a specialized MRI machine. The Bust of Steamboat has also contributed artwork for the infusion treatment area in the hospital.
Bust of Steamboat pays for mammograms, wellness visits, biopsies, and some treatment costs for uninsured and underinsured individuals. The Bust of Steamboat has also facilitated the creation of soft/warm hats and scarves (made by community members) for patients in treatment.
The Bust of Steamboat is a local Breast Cancer Fundraiser with 100% of proceeds benefitting the women of Routt & Moffat Counties.
2-gether we are The Power of Pink!
It’s often small acts that can have a profound effect. The Power of Pink means we work together so that no woman fights alone. Billo Premium Cannabis dispensary is getting involved with this initiative for the third year and running.
With the community’s help, Bust of Steamboat can spread the message about the importance of early detection as well as raise money for local women. Together, we’re stronger in numbers.
Despite the advances in science, breast cancer still prevails. And Steamboat Springs is not immune. Local women are still being diagnosed everyday and preparing for the fight of their lives. 1 in 8 women in general will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. That’s an astounding number and a figure worth paying attention to. In Steamboat alone, 35 to 40 women per year are diagnosed with breast cancer. That’s 3-4 women a month. Right now, your neighbor could be in the fight for her life.
What We Believe:
Together we stand stronger and have the power to change lives. We believe that any small amount of burden we can lift from what these women are going through could have a profound effect on their mental well-being and change the course of their recovery.
Billo Premium Cannabis is partnering with Bust of Steamboat and donating $.50 for every pre-roll joint sold in the month of October. Over the years this has amounted to several thousand dollars donated thanks to our customers.
We’re asking our community to show the same strength, courage and support that breast cancer survivors show every day of their fight. Help us show the world that Steamboat Springs is breast cancer aware this October.
