Ginger's Klosett Spreads Awareness With Pink Window Display, Honor Cards During Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Ginger's Klosett carries breast cancer awareness information in eight languages through the month of October.

Splashes of orange and black and Halloween images decorated most Downtown Renton business windows in preparation for Saturday’s “Olde” Fashioned Halloween Party.

Most, but now all.

The windows of Ginger’s Klosett glowed pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

“Cancer is a beast,” said Kim at Ginger’s Klosett, who wanted to honor those who have lost their battle with the disease, and those still fighting it.

Kim decorated the boutique’s window along South Third Street with mannequin busts topped with pink accessories, stylish hats, pink brassieres and information pamphlets.

She understands Renton’s diverse demographic, so the information sheets include eight languages:  English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese and Hindi.

In addition to the window display, the remainder of Ginger’s Klosett window space dons honor plaques with the names of women who have beaten or continue to fight the disease.

“Hope starts here,” she said of her desire to get information out to the public and show that woman have beaten cancer.

The display will be up through the month of October. Ginger’s Klosett is located at 825 South Third Street at the intersection of Wells Avenue.

On a related topic, we have a new resident on the West Hill who just received the terrible news that his mother in Knoxville is dying of cancer, so he has set up a medical relief fund so that he can bring her here, and be her caretaker. Please visit this link to read the complete story, and give if you can. Every little bit will help, since Justin is unemployed, and his mother has little means and lives alone: http://www.giveforward.com/kathrynnorthemergencycancerfundraiser# Thanks so much!
