Breast Cancer Awareness Month
It’s pink, it’s sparkles, it’s a new piece of jewelry from Brighton’s Breast Cancer collection.
It’s a reminder of a victory, or sadness from defeat.
It’s a celebration, it’s smiles, it’s tears.
I’m passionate about the month of October - and not because I am literally in love with fall. There’s a reason much deeper and a feeling more profound than the warm fuzzies I get when the leaves change colors or when I sip on my pumpkin coffee.
On August 6, 2013 my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. We had a long journey ahead of us four years ago, but today we praise the Good Lord for His gifts, and my mom’s victory.
To the fighters:
Worrying cannot do any good to make your life better, but only to take away your joys.
When I first found out that my mom was suffering from cancer I didn’t like to talk about it; but I sure did think about it. I was constantly reading and researching, until I realized there isn’t a way that I could cure her, I’m not an oncologist. Every day is gift; cherish the moments and memories that make your heart beat and your soul smile.
To the survivors:
“A cheerful glance brings joy to the heart; good news invigorates the bones.” Proverbs 15:30 (NABRE)
Dance, smile, and celebrate! Nourish your body, and be thankful for the life you’re living.
To those who have lost a loved one:
Although we feel defeated and betrayed, we know our loved ones are no longer suffering in pain and fighting their battle. We will hug them and dance with them in Heaven.
I aspire to share my story in hopes to remind others that they’re not fighting alone.
I encourage all women to be aware and proactive in their health. I have included many resources below to inspire, encourage, and inform you.
