They are some of the smartest and most creative students at St. Luke's College: Radiologists in the making.
All of them teamed up with some glitter and glue and bedazzled the heck out of several bras that'll be making their appearance at the annual June E. Nylen and Susan G. Komen Boxers & Bras for a Cause, an event that helps fund mammograms and colonoscopies for the underserved, right here in Siouxland.
While their busy class schedules didn't make it easy...
Jessica Kramer of Lakeview, IA, explains, "Sometimes we go out of town for clinicals and we had to make time and figure out how we were gonna do it so we could beat the deadline, since we all have different, busy schedules."
Finding the time was important, they say.
Jayna Hilbert, of Hartley, IA, says, "My teacher is a survivor of cancer so that was really inspirational to do this in honor of her."
Not only that, but for some of the other students, breast cancer hits even closer.
Farrah Navarrete, of South Sioux City, NE, says, "A couple years ago I had a friend who was actually only 22 who died because of breast cancer and I just never realized it could be so young."
While Marsha Moore, the group's Radiology instructor and the inspiration behind many of these bras, doesn't wish the disease among any of her students, it's experiences like these, she says, that will not only make them more compassionate in their personal lives, but in their jobs, as well.
Moore says, "When you have first hand experience with an illness, you understand the feelings that are going through a patient's head when they come into the department, the fear of the unknown, the fear of the exam itself, I think it's just makes them more compassionate."
Moore says she's so very proud of her students for giving back to their community with the profession they've chosen and still finding time to support the cause.
If you'd like to attend this year's Boxers and Bra's for a Cause, it's Thursday, October 18th at the Sioux City Public Museum on 4th Street.
