PINK RIBBONS DON’T COST ALL THAT MUCH—BUT LISTENING AND UNDERSTANDING IS MUCH MORE VALUABLE…IN ADDITION TO WRITING REGULAR CHECKS!
I chose today, halfway through this breast cancer awareness month, to highlight those badass women that Adiba chose to highlight thus far during her 100 days of MBC. Yes, I should disclose that my picture is amongst the ones below. Each of us who were highlighted picked an issue near and dear to our hearts to showcase and you can learn a little more about our stories in the captions below the pictures.
Why do this?
I’ve been sharing facts and some of my perspectives thus far and I think it’s important to see the faces of the people and families who are directly affected by this insidious disease. We come from all places, ages, races, professions; metastatic breast cancer is a true equalizer.
Read on and celebrate these women who are turning a terminal diagnosis into a rallying cry for action, for change, for advocacy, and for LIVING.
