Pink for October

It’s that time again! October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and to spark awareness around the world wide web PinkforOctober.org has asked web site owners to go pink for the month of October.

Last year, I grabbed a pink wordpress theme and called it a month. This year, I’ve gone ahead and created a pink theme in honor of my grandmother and aunt who have had to bare the burden of cancer. My aunt, Diane, and grandmother, Zella, are survivors. Tragically I have lost Diane to a second wave of cancer after she had beaten the disease. My grandmother is still doing well with no signs of remission.

My thoughts go out to all those who are fighting cancer and those survivors out there who have beaten this tragic disease. My heart goes out to you and your families and friends, that you will all stay strong through the fight and come out in the end. I financially support cancer research and cure development, and I do all that I can to create awareness in my community regarding this disease.

Every year, every dollar, every effort of cancer awareness brings us that much closer to finding a cure. Won’t you help?

  • It’s an emotional experience for me to read all the good words being written. My family and I have been in this field for years and it’s amazing to see how awareness has grown.
