We have come a long way over the last few decades. We are proud of the record, the milestones. Women are more in touch with their bodies and are staying informed about the safeguards of breast cancer. There are festivals and tremendous fundraising efforts across the country. Seminars, conferences and tons of survivors talk about their journey. This is all good but there’s no time for complacency. We want better days for women because cancer continues to take lives. Each of us knows a family or friend who has been touched by this disease. For my part, I will write and donate…..write to uplift those affected and donate to causes whose mission is to help eradicate the disease.
We can all play a role in helping towards breast cancer demise. Walk, march, speak, inform. Sit with a friend. Volunteer moments. Give what you can. This is October, the highlight month of this aggressive illness. May each of us devote time and effort to help end breast cancer.
