Celebrating Survival

Boobs. Front and center of men's eternal love-lust relationship. Women diagnosed with breast cancer fear more than a potentially deadly invasion of their bodies. They think they're kissing femininity good-bye—an offensive our mammary-obsessed society should counter-attack with love and support. The Van Ditthavong Gallery is raising money for a Dallas nonprofit that provides services for uninsured women in 16 local counties. Portraits of Life: A Celebration of the Women of Bridge Breast Network features photographs of seven survivors' stories, as well as low-cost portraiture sessions. Seek inspiration at the Van Ditthavong Gallery Thursday through October 25 (by appointment), located at 830 Exposition Ave. in Dallas. Call 469-773-6990 or visit bridgebreast.org.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
