For me October has always meant orange pumpkins-but I have come to also think of October as the Pink month!
You see I have a reason to Celebrate October and the color PINK. My two reasons……
My sister in law Roseann was diagnosed 5 years ago with Breast Cancer. My oldest son Josh was diagnosed 5 years ago with Testicular cancer. I can Happily say and celebrate that they are BOTH cancer free and living a good life!
Their cancers were both found from just a routine exam – early detection was key to both of their success stories.So ladies and gentlemen it is time to get yourself checked!!!! My mother also was a 40 year breast cancer survivor so it was planted in my heart early to always get a mammogram every year. For my sister and myself it is our MUST do yearly check up.
Through the years my family has walked and cheered on the Susan B Komen walks around Dallas. They were both fun and very inspirational – Here are a few pics from years past.
Sarah( my niece) with 3 dear friends ,walked in the 3 day walk all around Dallas – what a accomplishment that was -
Sunni and Tiffany ( two on the right) Mom – Marlene died of Breast cancer when they were little girls – two of Sarah's best friends. Tiff had a broken foot and walked and Sunni was pregnant – now that is determination! For Annalee,Sarah,Tiffany and Sunni it was a experience they will never forget.
Two years ago we all decided to join the Race/walk in Dallas and I have NEVER seen that much Pink and people in one spot in my life! We celebrated for Roseann and her battle-
Sarah this year went down to cheer on the walkers in Washington DC as they walked on the 3 day walk-she will never forget her walk and the walk of women fighting Breast Cancer.
With her guys beside her she cheered them on – her sign pretty much says it all…….
