In April 2002, the Soroptimist International Northwestern Region Conference in Bellevue, Wash., held a bra decorating contest under the heading of "Soroptimists are our Breast Friends." More than 50 entries were submitted, including the Veggie Bra below. Donations raised during the conference were used to fund Soroptomist service projects such as mammography for under-served women and to promote breast cancer awareness.
These photos were take by Suzanne Ellis, Radiology Department Manager and the registered mammographer at Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center in Kodiak, Alaska. Suzanne also serves as President of Soroptimist International of Kodiak. Their primary service project is the Myrt Meyers Fund which provides mammography and other cancer screenings for local women who fall outside insured services. Additionally, they have an off-island travel fund for women needing diagnostic services.
