In the search for a cure to breast cancer, it is important to forge ahead and focus on what is left to be accomplished. But it is equally important to remember milestones in research or advocacy that demonstrate how far the fight has come. The need to recognize past victories was the subject of a recent reception and photo exhibition at the Saudi Embassy. Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. Adel A. Al-Jubeir and Zahra Breast Cancer Association, an organization of Saudi women who seek to raise awareness about breast cancer, invited guests to commemorate the first anniversary of the world’s largest human pink ribbon. Just over a year ago, a group of Saudi women stood together in the formation of a pink ribbon, the international symbol of breast cancer awareness, in order to raise consciousness about the need for a cure. At the Saudi Embassy reception, guests celebrated these women’s accomplishment – and began to imagine what the next pink ribbon idea could be.
