Splash of Color Receives Award

Cathy Ketton, Shae Robinson and Nissha Walker are living proof that you can live, work and be happy after breast cancer.  This family volunteer team works within their community to provide education, resources and support to women of color about breast cancer.

They empower women to receive the care they need with the dignity they deserve.  Four years ago this team took a vision and formed a reality, Splash of Color.  The group’s mission is to assist women of color to care for themselves, get healthy and live life to the fullest.

The first Splash of Color Walk brought awareness that there is support for women of color surviving breast cancer.  This year’s Splash of Color Walk will be held Saturday, October 27th.

Splash of Color award recipients (from L-R): ShanQuiesha Robinson, Cathy Ketton and Nissha Walker.

The YWCA of Black Hawk County recognized the Splash of Color as their Women of Persimmon’s Business/Organization that Empowers Women for 2012.
