When I asked my long time acquaintance Sherry Steveson to contribute her talents and time to our Think Pink Campaign, she graciously agreed. Sherry said that she had a layout that would be perfect for what we had in mind. and it is Perfect! Not only is the layout beautifully designed, but its touching journalling brought me to tears.
There was a time that if you asked me my favorite color, the last color that I would have chosen would have been pink. But this was before pink became a symbol of something that I’ve come to believe in very deeply. Pink has come to represent the Fight that a woman I would come to know as a second Mother lost. Pink is the color of the courage that another friend has managed to find. Pink represents the hope of so many Mother’s, Sisters, Daughters and friends. No longer do I see pink as a color that I’m reluctant to chose but rather a color that is a symbol for all woman to believe in. It is because I care so much about the cause of Breast Cancer Awareness that I have ran several years in a row in the Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure. It is because this cause is personal that I wear pink proudly and remind other’s to support the fight for a cure. I also believe that as I set about to join the fight, I am also doing this for my daughter so that someday she will have hope of a tomorrow free from worry and loss. I have come to THINK PINK is a symbol of honor to wear proudly.
Breast cancer affects our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, and us too. If you are part of a loved one’s support network, this post is for you. Thanks for all that you do to help in the coping, caregiving, and healing process of survivorship.
Thank you, Sherry, for being a part of our Think Pink campaign as we try to raise awareness for breast cancer and emphasize early detection. Your layout is another reminder of how breast cancer touches us all.
