I am glad that breast cancer awareness month is over. I didn't participate in much except a fashion show called Hope on the Runway. It was a benefit to raise funds for Susan G. Komen. I've always wondered how much actually goes to research for a cure and I have since learned that only 10% goes towards finding a cure. So many companies buy pink products ~ everything from pink sneakers to pink Christmas ornaments. I've always wondered how much is actually handed over for research. I didn't do the walks in October but I was asked to be in two fashion shows. One I was able to make and had a lot of fun and the other I wasn't able to make. I just wish we find a cure!
Our life stories have to wordlessly echo the story of redemption—and make it easier for others to live that same tale. Thank goodness God is always ready to help us improve our story-telling techniques (and to rewrite those places where we fail)!
It has been a challenging year to say the least. Diagnosed with breast cancer on January 9th my life was propelled a series of unending doctor appointments. I wish I would have written in this blog about the steps I went through but I couldn't think back then and was exhausted most of the time. So I'm going to attempt to catch up now and try to piece together my story now since diagnosis. I'm going to try to catch up because I want to be able to look back on this as a success story and have it all in writing so my children can see what I went through. They only saw on the surface level what I went through. But not the day to day stuff because they were in school. I will write more later.
