Colors of Cancer Focus on Lavender Ribbon

Lavender Ribbon

When the usual Sprinkle Pink for Breast Cancer awareness in the Bitterroot Valley expanded to the Colors of Cancer, one of the biggest advocates for the Pink Ribbon and breast cancer awareness chose to lead the Lavender Team representing all cancers.

Susan Wetzsteon, Mikesell’s Fine Jewelry employee, has participated in Sprinkle Pink fundraising for seven years and starting with making a raffle quilt. She tuned into breast cancer awareness because her best friend died from breast cancer four years ago.

Wetzsteon said her change from pink to lavender was brought about by a Facebook post.

“Right after the information came out about the Colors of Cancer Stephanie (Roebke) posted something on Facebook about the need to have a bigger awareness for all kinds of cancer because her daughter dealt with cancer as a young child and it opened my heart,” Wetzsteon said through tears. “I lost Jaime (Grant) but so many people in my life have been affected by cancer so we need awareness for everybody.”
