As we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink is everywhere, from shopping bags to jewelry, clothing, makeup and beyond. Many companies take part in selling pink products to raise awareness and funds to support the fight against this awful disease. Breast cancer is a personal issue for many of us. Unfortunately we all have someone we love, or many someone's, who have fought or are currently fighting the battle. My mom is still in treatment and this week a childhood friend of mine, Sarah, was diagnosed. Sarah has two daughter's, one of whom is a senior in high school just like mine. This is supposed to be a happy, exciting time not a time full of doctor's appointments and chemo. One of our friends came up with the awesome idea for all of Sarah's girlfriends to post pictures of themselves on her Facebook page wearing pink to show her our love and support. I took my pictures yesterday after church to post on the designated "Pink for Sarah Day", today. I wore the patterned scarf to church and then switched to the pink one for my "Pink for Sarah" picture. It was really amazing this morning to look at Sarah's Facebook page and see all of her friends who love her and are praying for her wearing pink! So this post is dedicated to all of those who have battled or are currently battling breast cancer ~ for me personally they are ~ Grace Kelly, Noreen Kelly Fischer, Sarah Ferraresso, Sue Cullen, Annaliese Delmarter and Amy Bagley Tyner. I pray that some day we find a prevention and a cure!
