Statue Of Survival

Rachel Mummey/The Herald
Mona Brewster of Kyana decorated a fiberglass horse at her home Monday with white ribbons after painting the horse pink in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Brewster is a two-time breast cancer survivor but recently was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer in her jaw; she will have surgery later this month. Brewster said she painted the horse pink after God spoke to her in the wake of her recent diagnosis. “If it can make one person laugh, while bringing awareness to cancer, then I’ve done my job,” she said, adding that the horse is available for use in community events to raise awareness.
