Okay Girls Get Your Pink On!

I know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but my personal feeling is we need to be aware and caring about this issue EVERY Month.

I know that breast cancer will touch each of our lives in someway or another. Whether it be personally, a mom, a sister, a daughter, a close friend, it will touch you in someway.

Cindy (http://armygirlsx4.blogspot.com/) has been on my mind and heart everyday since I first learned of her story about two weeks ago. She is being very courageous and brave to blog her journey so we can see the power of God working in her life. Cindy is not the only one going on this journey, her sweet and precious daughters and her husband are on it too.

What can we do?

We can educate ourselves, support those around us that are in the midst of this journey and pray!

May we know that God cares about each and everything that touches our lives!

This is truly an issue that touches every woman, because even if we are spared of the disease, we all personally know someone who has it.

Thanks for bringing it to the forefront.

Pink is my signature color! Remember that line from Steel Magnolias? Well, pink is my, and both my sister's siganture color! My youngest sister at the age of 33 was diagnosed with breast cancer. That was 6 years ago! She went through chemo and a double mastectomy. A year after that a hysterectomy. She has been cancer free for 6 years! A mother of 4 and one of my very best friends - she is a warrior and a survivor. Praying for all who have had, have or been touched by someone who has had breast cancer!

I am proud to wear my pink in honor of my mother who is a breast cancer survivor! Woo hoo! Go mom! I wrote this article about two years ago. http://www.blessedlady.com/pinkfaith.htm

Each Christmas a few neighbors and I exchange small gifts. I always try to buy something related to and being sold to help breast cancer patients and research. (ie..Christmas ornament, pens, mugs etc). That is a great way to help the research and help others become aware. Just always check that the company you buy the items from is sending all or most profits to research. (READ THE SMALL PRINT!)

I have been following Cindy's story too, very touching. Like I said in my blog-M.D.Anderson says they take in 1600 new patients daily. That's 1600 a day! Unreal isn't it.

D#1 was just noticing that the pink lids are back on her yogurt. She was so proud to be able to send off an envelope full of labels to help the fight.

Her grandmother (my mother-in-law) died from cancer just 2 years ago--discovered and addressed too late to do anything about, unfortunately.

We absolutely need to rally around those who are fighting with our encouragement, support and prayers. It all matters!

Amen...I have several friends who either have cancer or are feeling the blow from it...

The power of prayer is pushing me through. You do not know what it means. I am very thankful. The girls are doing great. Working on day 2 of chemo. Please pray for it to work and not make me too sick.

Love Cindy
