A visually-pleasing type of breast cancer awareness
campaign has made its way over to South Placer County, California, according to the Sacramento Bee
The initiative, which is sponsored by South Placer Art in Public Places, will see 10 to 15 ribbon-shaped sculptures being placed around the area. The works of art can be viewed for the next three months, and will go up for sale at an auction afterwards.
Kaiser Permanente Hospital hosted one such statue, which was a multi-tinted ribbon that touted every color of the rainbow. The piece was dedicated to Dr Ernie Bodai, director of breast surgical services at the hospital.
Of course, the hardworking physician didn't hesitate to reiterate his dedication to the cause.
"We have a long way to go, and a lot of work needs to be to be done," Bodai told the news outlet.
Education about breast cancer is one of the first steps the public can take to ensure early detection. Experts estimate that over 90 percent of women who are diagnosed with stage one of the disease have at least a five-year survival rate.
