Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Sunday, October 4, 2015
October is breast cancer awareness month. Cue pink ribbons, support walks, and reminders of those that have lost the fight.  For me breast cancer continues to hit way to close home. Over the course of the last few years my friends and family have been suffering -- mothers have been sick, aunts have fallen ill, and little sisters have started the battle with breast cancer (way too earlier).  

Cancer is such a devastating disease. Outside of skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women.  It doesn't discriminate and can be incredibly unforgiving and unmerciful. It can create a void in families and opens up the kind of wounds that take years to heal. Breast cancer is a death sentence for some but for others it's a badge of survival. To all the women (and men) out their surviving, this post is dedicated to you. Keep Fighting! Your hope and strength are inspirations, not just to those affected by breast cancer but to all of us. 


I encourage you all to please take this month (and every month) to focus on early detection, education, and support of cancer research and health services. Learn about your own risks factors, get screened, and find out the facts about breast cancer, today!
