The Pinky Promise in Bastrop


(BASTROP) There have been no cures for breast cancer discovered during these months of the COVID pandemic, making October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month as important as ever.

We at Stanberry Realtors, along with Bastrop County Cares Breast Cancer Coalition, recognize the importance of breast screenings and early breast cancer detection.
