This month is hugely important to me. Its breast cancer awarness month. We are all still fighting for the cure. There is an irony to this for me… while i dont suffer from breast cancer I do have lymphoma. Last year before I knew i had cancer I did a fight for the cure shoot for breast cancer, two months later I was diagnosed with cancer. Maybe it was intuition who knows but what I do know is that I have walked in the shoes of those affected and those hurt by this disease and we all need to pay attention and do what we can to help.
If i didnt have all of you amazing people in my corner through this experience I couldnt be smiling through it. You are all amazing and im having so much fun with you guys online every day. You keep me alive, you keep me sane and you keep me happy.
Last month was lymphoma month represented by a green ribbon this month lets bring the pink out and you all KNOW i love pink ! SO get your pink ribbons out and lets help find a cure ! Im showing my boobies for the cure !! Lets have some fun and fight and kick the shit out of it !
Here are some facts about breast cancer :
Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast. It is considered a heterogeneous disease—differing by individual, age group, and even the kinds of cells within the tumors themselves. Obviously no woman wants to receive this diagnosis, but hearing the words “breast cancer” doesn’t always mean an end. It can be the beginning of learning how to fight, getting the facts, and finding hope.
Women in the United States get breast cancer more than any other type of cancer except for skin cancer. It is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer death in women.
Each year it is estimated that nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die .
