It’s October, which means three important things – I grow a year older, lots of children will be gain cavities from their Halloween festivities, and it’s time to honor and celebrate our sisters who have lost or won their battles with Breast Cancer. Still one of the most prevalent diseases to affect everyone woman we know either directly or indirectly, it’s important for us to put our issues aside and come together to aid in finding a cure.
Recently, New York lost another sister to breast cancer a couple of weeks ago. Emily Easter (1978 -2013), a travel publicist, had documented her stories via her blog, The Brightside: Breast Cancer at 31, for the world to read. In honor and celebration of her life, Measure Lounge at Langham Place Fifth Avenue, has created a cocktail entitled “Cheers to Emily”. Comprised of blanco tequila, pink grapefruit liqueur, lemon, and strawberry syrup, $1 of each drink sale will be donated to The Pink Daisy Project. An organization that helps women cope with the emotional struggles that go along with treatment, by just being there.
So for the remaining month of October, catch up with loved ones, or enjoy a night cap after dinner, by saying “Cheers to Emily”.
