Bionic Asks: Has breast cancer touched you?

Bionic Beauty Asks - Makeup and beauty question blog article series

In keeping with Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought we’d open the discussion up to how Breast Cancer has touched your life.

To get things moving, I’ll start.
Breast Cancer has certainly affected my life. My aunt is a breast cancer survivor. It was earlier in life than the usual age, which makes me all the more adamant on my monthly self-exams. She’s a very strong woman, and one of my personal heroes. I’m so proud of her strength and ability to fight this horrible disease. She is the definition of “Achieving Powerful Beauty” in my opinion. She’s one of the many, many reasons that I work extra hard to raise awareness every October.

And now it’s your turn. You don’t have to use names, you can be vague or detailed, just post something about events you’ve participated in (or plan to!), or charities you support. Also, feel free to post any upcoming Breast Cancer charity events in the comments below, but be sure to include some information in case an interested reader wants to participate!

Hi Jamie,

I had a cousin who at age 30 was diagnosed with breast cancer right after she had her first child. The cancer came and went and spread over the next 10 years. She fought it with chemo, radiation, drugs, homeopathic medicines and even a bone marrow transplant. Sadly though, right after her 40th birthday she passed away. It’s strange because her son had never known his mother without cancer.

I also work at a Biotech company that makes the #1 breast cancer drug, and I hear stories every day about people who beat it. It’s very inspiring!

Thanks for this post!

I work at a clinic where we do mammograms and we diagnose about one woman a day with breat cancer. You feel so bad telling someone they have breast cancer but there are some great programs that we get them hooked up with that help them and their families in the process. My heart goes out to everywomen and their families that come through our door and leave crying. There are some breat programs out there to help pay for mammograms if you can’t afford one so please everyone get screened. Early detection is your best protection.
