‘Breakfast club’ raises cancer awareness

Published 1:35pm Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Tuesday mornings for four local women are filled with breakfast, good conversation and reminiscing about the “good ol’ days,” but this Tuesday there were unified by something more than their history together.

Elizabeth Bond, Lois McCarson, Margaret “Sissie” Carter and Helen Kyser gathered Tuesday at 8 a.m. for their weekly breakfast at Jack’s all wearing pink T-shirts in support of childhood cancer awareness.

The women all purchased T-shirts from Jennifer Thomason of Demopolis, whose daughter Anna-Coleman battled cancer.

Through their support and the support of others, Thomas was able to donate a check of $1,225 to A-Team ministries in Birmingham.

The ministry aids families of cancer patients through various forms of assistance.
