My childhood friend lost her mother to breast cancer and it hurt me too because she used to pick me up from school when my mom couldn’t and she always kept an eye on us during lunch break. It's the little things and good memories you always keep in your heart. She fought and was brave and strong to the very end; may she rest in peace. I also had to see my friend Miriam go through this disease and my aunt Deny. It’s not easy believe me to see them go through so much pain, chemotherapy, to losing their hair, losing a breast is really tough, but what really touches my heart is how these women take this experience and get stronger. They take on a fight they never imagined they would take and do it with so much courage, hope and bravery that they will win. My aunt Deny and Miriam are two of the lucky women that have survived breast cancer and each day that passes they are grateful for the second shot at life they received. I still have them in my life and I am also grateful for that.
There are so many brands out there which during October, focus on creating breast cancer awareness. I truly admire that. Some people see this as brands trying to sell a product, but I don’t see it that way because they don’t have to do it. They chose to create awareness and donate half or a percentage to the cause and hopefully someday not too far a cure can be found. This year I am joining Glamulet's Pink October 2015 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. I am doing it for all the women out there, for those who don’t have the disease so that they can take preventive measures and check their breasts every month. I am doing it for my aunt Deny and my friend Miriam and all our brave survivors and lastly for all those brave souls who fought breast cancer to the very end.
Glamulet's is offering a whole collection of pretty pink cancer awareness charms, of every charm you purchase 50% of the sales will be donated to a charity fund for breast cancer, visit their website www.glamulet.com for more information. Every effort is done to create awareness which is important to me because of my aunt and Miriam who I saw take on this battle they did not ask for. They fought with hope, strength and braveness they defeated this disease. I want this effort or any other effort to help so that women have a better chance at beating this disease, for present and future generations so that a cure can be found. It shouldn’t only be in October it should be all year round because every day someone is diagnosed with breast cancer. Ladies please, checking your breasts at home every month it’s a great way to catch this disease early. You know your body better than anyone else. if you find something that you don’t think is not normal please get it checked. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Join me in creating awareness. Together we can help women all over the globe take preventive measures. Help support those facing this disease. Show our survivors we are proud and lastly show compassion and comfort to those families who lost a loved one to breast cancer.
