My mom, aunt and grandmother were all daignosed with breast cancer27 years ago, about 3 months apart. My mom and aunt are both survivors, my grandmother died some 10 years later from metastatic breast cancer. I am religious about mammos and preach to all that will listen. I am an RN in a student health center on a college campus, so I have a very captive audience. I used my cricut and other scrapbook tools to design a bullentin board that would appeal to our croud. We also hand out breast self exam sheets to all client...both male and female. We continue to add to our displays yearly, which I do through scrapbooking. This is such a worthwhile thing to shout from the rooftops and I get to do it all through scrapboooking:)

I will be walking in the annual breast cancer walk this month to honor my friends and family members who are survivors, fighters, and in memory of my friend who lost her battle.

Cindy Roman-Daversa said...

In 1995, after being a single mom for 4 years, I met my Prince. We married, and with my children and our new baby, we thought we had the fairy tale life. In 2003, we bought a house that we loved. In 2005, everything changed. I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was aggressive, but I was determined to live. And so, here I am, 7 years later. I encourage friends and family to take care of their bodies, and I encourage men as well. I have scrapbooks from walks, and every year I celebrate life. And hope. I thank you for participating in saving lives!

I have a friend/co-worker and a cousin who are both breast cancer survivors.

A friend underwent a surgery having both breasts removed to breast cancer. She didn't give up, she fought like a girl and still does. Not only does she battle daily with the recovering process, she weekly takes part in a three karate classes that have taught those who know her to fight harder and never give up. Lots take things for granted, those that know my friend Sara know she takes nothing for granted by rises to each challenge she faces and kicks it right in the butt. She is my inspiration, my hero and a friend.

My mom had breast cancer, but went through chemo and radiation, and supposedly doesn't have it anymore. What I do is support research financially.

Lucia said...

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month staff/teachers in our district (13 schools) will be wearing pink throughout the month.

In my class, I have encouraged my students to wear pink too to honor loved ones or friends.

I personally do not know anyone who has battled this disease but I do realize it has affected many.

I have three survivors within my friends circle and one angel in heaven. I have been participating in our annual Susan G. Komen walk for the last 4 years in honor of my angel and my survivors. This year on October 20th, I am doing a Scrapbooking Workshop with some friends. We are donating my proceeds to the susan G. Komen Walk and giving a few layouts away for ladies who have had a very difficult time during the process of treatment and trying to raise a family with small children. We know it's only a little gift but, we hope that it brightens their day, allows them to put some precious memories in a scrapbook, and give them something to strive for. We hope to present these layouts the same weekend of our walk this year.

Oh..it's so sad that almost everyone is affected by someone they know, family member or close friends that have been stuck by this disease. I have a very close friend of my daughters that was just diagnosed with breast cancer. How hard to see a young person go through this. Thankfully she has family and friends to help her fight this disease. Surgery, radiation and chemo is all planned for her starting this coming week. I'm not sure what comes first. She did just cut her hair and donate it for wigs for those who lose their hair like she will. I've created some fight like a girl cards to keep her spirits up and i've also participated in and sponsored people who run events for this cause. Fight fight fight and WIN....

My cousin had breast cancer at 45. She had both breasts removed. both of her sisters decided to do gene screening, 1 came up positive, 1negative. The positive sister opted to have both breasts removed in fear of getting the breast cancer too. She was younger than her sister. Both have had reconstructive surgery and are very involved in the fight against BC. They do the 3 day walk every year and since I can't walk myself due to a back injury, I support them with money. This is such a heartless disease. I always promote awareness and ask women colleagues to make sure to get screened. I do every year. thanks for sharing the awareness. Tami McDaniel

Get an annual mammogram-especially if you have a family history of breast cancer. I lost my mom to this disease when she was only 58. Her 1st grandchild was born 3 months after she passed away. I have 3 friends who are survivors and I cherish them. I wear pink for all the women I know and love who have been touched by this horrible disease.

GlendaLea said...

I have my neighbor who is a five year survivor, my twin sister who was diagnosed this year and just underwent a double mastectomy, she is my hero, she has such a positive attitude. Sadly I had a friend who passed away a year and a half ago and she was about 40. I beg women and men to check themselves every month and to have a yearly mammogram. I wear my ribbon all year long. I do walks and organized that in the month of October that we wear PINK on Fridays and pay $5 a week. We will find a cure one day.

Pam said...

My mom is a 30 year breast cancer survior so I know my chances of getting it is 50%. She is my hero and I love her very much. In the past month my health is in question because of several spots that have appeared on my mamo. I wear pink breast cancer bracelet everyday and during the month of October I distribute note cards to friend and coworkers as reminders for self exams and annual mamos. As I look around me I know of not one woman that has not been affected by this. Mothers, daughters, sisters and friends we are in this together.

I was recently diagnosed, this years, with stage 3 Breast Cancer at the age of 35 years. I had a mammogram 2 years ago because I thought I felt a lump. The mammogram showed nothing and I was told I was fine. Then this Feb. I definitely felt a lump and, again, I had a mammogram and it showed nothing. This time I was given ultrasound because the lump was clearly felt by the doctor. It turns out I had four lumps and I have Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. In my journey this year I have found mammograms do not usually work for woman under the age of 50, due to dense breast tissue, and cancer will grow undetected until a lump is felt. I have been getting out the word to woman under the age of 50 to advocate for themselves by pushing for ultrasounds and MRI mammograms, especially if there is a familial history of cancer. I now post updates on Facebook, radio spots, and have linked up with many breast cancer awareness organizations. If my cancer would have been caught 2 years ago maybe I would not need 2 rounds of chemo, radiation,and double mastectomy. We need better detection methods!

I was 38 years old when I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. I had 8 chemo treatments, a mastectomy, 4 more chemo treatments then 30 radiation treatments. That took 11 months. After that I had two reconstruction surgeries and a hysterectomy. That took another year. It has now been 4 1/2 years since my diagnosis. Believe it or not I am grateful that I had cancer. Because of it I am a much more positive person. I have met many amazing people because of it and I have been the recipient of many acts of kindness and seen many small miracles in my life. I also had the opportunity to serve as the president of the Young Survivor Sisters, a support group for young women with breast cancer. For his Eagle Scout project my son made 517 heart pillows for breast cancer patients to use under their arm after surgery. I also put together a 56 page "tip list" of what helped me during my treatments. My tip list has been passed to over 200 women that I know of. I feel like the reason I got breast cancer was so I could help other women as they experience it.
