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!
