Lift Your Spirits: Think pink to support cancer research

Posted by Laura Hunt Little  |  September 25, 2013

In high school, breast cancer awareness was something I wholeheartedly supported, sporting the little pink ribbon and rattling off facts. But it wasn’t until I  met real-life survivors and sat by a friend while she struggled to deal with her mother’s cancer that I really began to understand that breast cancer awareness was more than percentages. And the strength that so many have displayed throughout the fight against an incurable disease was something made for the movies.

For breast cancer awareness month, Miramonte Resort and Spa will put on a “Think Pink” celebration  in partnership with the Desert Cancer Foundation. Starting Thursday, the Vineyard Lounge will offer cocktails including this refreshing mojito.
