Warsaw senior citizens decorate bras for breast cancer awareness


Friday wraps up the fourth annual bra decorating contest by Indiana University Health Goshen.

Some nursing home residents at Warsaw Meadows Care Center decided to take part. They took actual bras and put beads and other ornaments on to raise awareness about breast cancer. Some men helped out and even tried on some of the bras.

"Made the whole room laugh, I was funny. I got embarrassed. I went to my room and cried," said Harold Gorra, laughing. Gorra decorated two bras. "I had just a great time doing it. Everybody had a good time doing it."

All the bras will be on display at the Retreat Women's Health Expo in Goshen on October 4. Money raised goes toward providing free mammograms for uninsured women.
