MyLifeLine.org initiated the first ever National #Ribboning Day on July 16, which was inspired by MyLifeLine.org members, Jen and Britton.
Jen and Britton are two caregivers who independently journeyed with their spouses, who lost their battles with terminal cancer in 2011 and 2012, respectively. They later met through a personal connection with MyLifeLine.org and were married on July 16, encouraging their wedding guests to ignite the #Ribboning movement.
“MyLifeLine.org supported Britton and me during a very dark part of our lives, and we want to support them however we can,” said Jen Garza, member of MyLifeLine.org, and Executive Director of Texas4000 for Cancer. “#Ribboning is our way to keep love going.”
