Breast Cancer Awareness (Never Lose Hope)



Breast Cancer Awareness

It's October and everything is turning pink. Literally; Out here in the city of fountains they have dyed the water pink to help raise awareness. It's a wonderful effort and I am thankful there is a full month dedicated to it, but I am a strong believer in it always being any type of cancer month.

My mother was a victim of  breast cancer, as well as thyroid, and uterine cancer but I am very very blessed to be able to say she was able to have ALL of it removed without a lick of chemo and is living healthy as a survivor.
Unfortunately, this is not the case for thousands of other victims and their families as there is still no cure for the cancer. So I'm writing this post to allow space to grieve,  a space to share memories, a space to unite those who share this burden, and a space to reach out and teach those who are unaware of cancers deadly trace. 

I encourage ALL WOMAN, not matter what age to perform self checks and of course make those mammogram appointment no matter how uncomfortable. 

Here are some links that may be helpful for tips, advise, self check guide and much more. 
"Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures."
Find info, explanations, and guides to help keep you prepared and healthy. 
A site that helps understand diagnosis, guides to preventions, and promote awarenessss.

Feel free to respond to any of the above. 
Many Blessings,

  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and links. My brother and grandma are survivors as well. Cancer is such a scary, awful thing...I'm so grateful for God's faithfulness amidst what seems like an insurmountable force. As a breastfeeding advocate, I also have to add that breastfeeding greatly reduces our risk of breast cancer. :)

    I look forward to reading more posts and trying out some of your yummy looking recipes!

  2. Thank you for sharing! I am so pleased to hear your brother and grandma are survivors. we must celebrate those victories while give space to mourn and grieve with those who have lost. I didn't know about breastfeeding helping reduce risk of breast cancer, but as a strong advocate for it for its unmatchable health benefits for the mother and child I am very glad to hear! Thank you for visiting! and please don't hesitate to comment on any thing.
