Thriving Pink's ProspeRosa program is inviting breast cancer warriors to attend an origami workshop led by Sylvina Frausto on Saturday, Feb. 17 from 1 to 3 p.m. at 501 2nd St. in Davis.
Alicia Silva, the Thriving Pink Spanish Outreach Chair, ProspeROSA Chair and Board Member, said the event is aimed at uplifting guerreras (breast cancer warriors) through their breast cancer journey through creative art expression.
"We will be making origami hearts to symbolize self-love and provide an uplifting, creative mode of expression," Silva said.
Those who plan to attend are asked to RSVP to 530-205-3004 to help event organizers account for food and beverages.
Thriving Pink's ProspeRosa program works to provide education, support and outreach to the Latino and Spanish-speaking community affected by breast cancer in Yolo County. They provide Spanish language educational workshops relating to breast cancer and provide breast cancer books in Spanish at the office library.
The program also provides support by connecting guerreras with Spanish-speaking mentors and community resources and holding events like their “Cafecitos” where guerreras can gather and share while having a cup of coffee.
