The Pink Glove Dance

Hi Everyone! The above video is so very cool. A friend sent it to me and it was sent to her by a friend. Here is what her friend wrote:

Our daughter-in-law, Emily (MacInnes) Somers, created, directed and
choreographed this in Portland last week for her Medline glove division as a
fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. This was all her idea to help
promote their new pink gloves. I don't know how she got so many employees,
doctors and patients to participate, but it started to really catch on and
they all had a lot of fun doing it.

When the video gets 1 million hits, Medline will be making a huge
contribution to the hospital, as well as offering free mammograms for the
community. Please check it out. It's an easy and great way to donate to a
wonderful cause, and who hasn't been touched by breast cancer?

I'm hoping that Medline is making donations at each 1 million mark!

Hi Sue

This is a wonderful post, my family have a long brest cancer history, going back three generations. Grandmother, mother and my sister, this means that all of the daughters coming down from my grandmothers side are considered to be in a 'high risk' catagory.

Last week it was my appoinment - good news - all clear, and on Tuesday it's my daughters 1st appointment at the family history clinic, I shall tell her about the pink glove dance while I hold her hand.

Your daughter-in-law must be a very special girl, please give her a big 'thank you' from our family raising the World's awareness to this hidious cancer.

Thank you Sue for passing on this wonderfull video.
