Pink for Pink
One of my best friends was diagnosed with Breast Cancer about 2 months ago. Today at 2pm she is scheduled to have a double mastectomy removing most of the cancerous tissue. She will still have to endure chemo treatments and all the side effects that that presents after she has healed up from surgery. She is truly one of the sweetest people I know…. She is healthy, vibrant, positive and 34 years young. I decided to color my hair pink for Pink as I have called her for years. I did it for her. I did it for Breast Cancer awareness. And now I’m writing this to remind you all that cancer is REAL. Cancer does not discriminate. Cancer is vicious and affects so many lives.
From my experience and from what I have heard from others, doctors will tell you that you are too young for a mammogram. Insist on one! PLEASE give yourself a breast self-exam once a month. If Pink hadn’t found a lump in her breast she would have been dead by summer.
I have been devastated by all of this and I know what I’m going through is about 1/1000th of what she is going through. Be thankful for everything you have. Be positive when you feel like nothing is going your way. Never take anything for granted. Do what makes you happy….
My heart goes out to everyone who has been affected by cancer.
