Starting immediately, we are taking nominations for the Pink Ribbon Society Breast Cancer Survivors’ 2022 Calendar.
Nominate a man or woman you feel would make a good role model for others who have been more recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Only stipulations is that they be at least three years post op and out of treatment.
You can snail mail the nomination or send it to our e-mail address at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re going to e-mail the nomination, put “nomination” in the subject area. Mailing address is 303 E. 89th Avenue, Suite 100, Merrillville, IN 46410.
Include the nominee’s name, address, phone number, and e-mail address. We’d also like to know a few personal things about them, i.e. married, employed, children, grandchildren, etc. Regarding their diagnosis, please include the following information if you have it, i.e. when they were diagnosed, kind of cancer/treatment. It’s also nice to know some special things like what they may have done since their diagnosis to pay it forward to others diagnosed with breast cancer, i.e. support groups, walks/runs to support breast cancer, other breast cancer affiliations.
Also, please include your name, e-mail address and phone number in case we need to get in touch with you.
Deadline for nominations is August 1 with the Calendar Girl Reception being held August 9th for those chosen to appear in the calendar. The Breast Cancer Awareness Survivors’ Celebration will be held Sunday, September 26, 2021 at the Avalon Manor. The nominee must be available for both the reception and celebration.
Once again, The Times will produce and print the calendar and Edda Taylor will do the photography.
