Click! June 2008: Yellow for Bri

This is a special edition of CLICK! , tinged with sadness and filled with hope. Yellow is the happiest colour in the spectrum. It signifies hope and enlightenment.

This month’s CLICK is in honour of Briana Brownlow – ‘Bri’ to her friends.

Bri is one of the 5% of women diagnosed with breast cancer under the age of 30. That was two and a half years ago. In August 2007, she started Figs With Bri – a serene, beautiful space where she shares with us her creative experiments with wonderful local organic ingredients. A month and a half ago, her worst fears came true. She learnt that her cancer has returned and metastasized to her lungs, her lymph nodes and several areas in her bones and is at Stage IV.

This edition of CLICK is more than a photo event. It is a fundraiser for our dear Briana. She was 15 when she saw her mother die of breast cancer. Now, she’s waging her own war.
