 St. David’s Women’s Center of Texas hosted a balloon launch to honor and celebrate breast cancer patients and survivors Tuesday afternoon October 23, 2012. Hundreds of white balloons, to honor patients who have died from breast cancer, and pink balloons, to celebrate the lives of those who survived breast cancer, were purchased in donations and released in a brief ceremony in north Austin. Proceeds from the purchase of the balloons benefit the Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas.
