Several blogs I follow have sported this powerful badge today.
I can’t find the origins, and THIS website says the date was last month. Whatever. I don’t think we can talk enough about cancer, promote awareness, or fight for a cure.
I’m totally copying Sue’s spin on this post.
Blue for my grandmother and aunt
Pink for a family friend fighting the fight, my sister’s friend and co-worker, friends who have fought the fight… and for my physician
Gosh, there are so many. This is SO hard… there’s someone for nearly every ribbon…
Skin cancer, thyroid cancer, non-Hodgkin’s large cell lymphoma… The list really is unending and at this point, I fear I’ll accidentally omit someone important to me, like our own Fred and all the other sweet, sweet dogs this awful disease has taken from us…
So you see, it doesn’t matter that some big non-profit “celebrated” this day last month. There’s never a wrong time to talk about cancer, to promote awareness, to mourn those taken from us, but don’t forget to celebrate the survivors. As heart-breaking as the losses are, there are the celebrations of life for the conquerors. One day, there will be more celebrations.
