Lifting and Loving...
There are so many aspects of a breast cancer journey and as much as I talk about early detection and breast health, there are other areas that matter so very much as well.
I think we all know someone who has had breast cancer. Maybe you have had it yourself. Or a loved one. Or a colleague. Or the mother of a friend. Statistics show us that we have all been touched by this disease in one way or another.
I speak as a survivor. I have my own unique story. And I talk to other women who have walked this journey and I know their unique story.
There are so many other stories, and these ones are from family and friends. How someone they love experienced their journey and how it impacted them.
Yesterday I stumbled upon this blog and read this post...I'm not sure why I jumped down to this particular post but I feel I was guided to do so.
Please read the post. If you know of someone who has been recently diagnosed with breast cancer or at some point someone you love is diagnosed (maybe even yourself), remember these words. Remember this experience that these women shared. Being supported through this journey means the world. Allowing others to support you gives them strength and hope. Sharing your love is never a bad thing...it's the greatest gift you can give.
Please note: as of 4:00 p.m. October 14th, the links to the mentioned blog Leap and Twirl are not working. Hopefully this will be corrected.
