My Grand mother who raised me died of breast cancer 8 years ago when I was 21. I miss her every day.

My wife belongs to a small quilt group. Three of her fellow quilters have had breast cancer. One has had a relapse.
My wife was a walker in the 2008 Boston Breast Cancer 3-Day and decided to do it again this year.
Breast cancer affects us all one way or another. Tim

As more and more people started to develop breast cancer, I started to urge myself to take a breast exam.

I have been blessed in the fact that the only women I personally know that have received a breast cancer diagnosis are SURVIVORS!

my cousin was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had a lumpectomy last week. She will be starting radiation in about 4 weeks. I would love to be able to add these to a gift basket for her.

So many friends and family have been touched by the disease. My mother had a scare but they were able to biopsy and it came back negative. Community education and early detection is so important.

My mother is a breast cancer survivor but I live in fear that it will return.

One of my very best friends' mother passed away when she was quite young with breast cancer.

My uncle's girlfriend of 13 passed away from breast cancer only a few short weeks after her first grandchild was born.

And finally.. a success story.. my ex-boyfriend's (whom I am still great friends with) mother had breast cancer twice, losing both of her breasts because of that, but fought it both times.

So breast cancer has affected me quite a bit.

Thank you for the giveaway, and even more for being a part of the many joining together for a cure.

My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was away at college. Thankfully, after treatment, she is healthy now and has been in remission for over a year!

I just lost my favorite Aunt to breast Cancer this April ad it was a shock She was a perfect example of taking care of everyone else but herself. We as a group have to put our own healthiness 1st because without us who gets the kids and the husbands to the Drs. Early detection is the key. We have to make it priority in our life.

Breast cancer has affected me by taking away many of my loved ones. I currently have an aunt that had breast cancer before and now it just came back. I pray she has the fight in her to conquer it again. I have had several scares with breast cancer and with proper preventative care, I hope it is never more than that for me. Thank you for the contest!

Linda said...

I think this is a great product and brings awareness to the cause. While no one in my family has been diagnosed with breast cancer (thank god), I do know friends who have been.

AJ said...

My mother had a growth removed from her breast 6 years ago. Although she survived, I will never forget the look of fear on her face when she found it, and the scar on her chest that she carries. This is such a great cause and I love the amount of awareness breast cancer is getting.

herblady said...

My mother died of breast cancer when I was 16 and her sister had it at the same time but lived many years. It all depends on how soon you find it and the skill of your doctors. I am at risk but so far have been lucky.

A big cyst was surgically-removed in my breast when I was 12 (I'm in my early 20's now). Since then, I make it a point to self-breast exam and have them clinically-checked once a year.

It's so sad reading all these stories. I'm just glad to see more pink ribbon products out there to support the good cause. Thanks.

Unfortunately, my great aunt died of Breast Cancer. My family was always really close with her and she was just a wonderful person who didn't deserve to go when or how she did. I've been blessed to not have anyone in my immediate family (mother, sister, grandmothers) or close friends be diagnosed, but you never really have to follow the trail far to find someone who has (i.e. not my friend, but her mother, etc.) and I think the more funds we can raise, reasearch we can do, and awareness we can spread, we'll all be better for it in the end. I hope this is the month we all can make a difference, however small it may seem. Good luck everyone and stay healthy! XOXO

I have always wanted to try Anastasia tweezers, what better than to try it while supporting a great cause. I usually walk in the Breast Cancer Awareness walks in Boston...

Megan said...

My mentor at work is a breast cancer survivor. She has an amazing positive spirit and was able to keep her chin up through everything...even the hair loss. She has a great sense of humor and when she went through the worst of her treatments you would often see her come in with an outrageous wig...and she would make comments like doesn't this red hair just suit me? Her strength in facing breast cancer has been an inspiration to another of our coworkers who is fighting the disease right now. Everyone needs to get regular check ups...it can affect any of us!!!

Roxy said...

I've seen the full spectrum of breast cancer as a medical student. I cherish mine more than ever now

I've taken part in the Race for the Cure for 15 years, and when I started, I didn't know anyone who had breast cancer. About ten years ago, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went through chemo and radiation. Two years later, she had breast cancer again. After having her breast removed, she went on chemo maintenance. She's had other small cancers in other areas due to her breast cancer (her spine, her hip). Just two months ago, they found another cancer behind her breast plate and she's back on very strong chemo. I'm very proud that when I run, I am honoring my brave mother who continues to fight for an entire decade and refuses to let cancer win.

My best friend's mother had breast cancer and that changed everything about her. She less energetic and outgoing now and it really affected our friendship.

Bethany said...

i think breast cancer and cancer has affected everyone in some way, so its hard for me to put a post here thats meant to be more affective than the others. ive lost a very good friend to cancer about 5 years ago. and my grandmother has also been battleing multiple types of cancer for the past 4 years.

Breast cancer especially this breast cancer month has reminded me that even though I'm not at the age where I will need to have yearly mammogram checks, but I still need to do them every once in a while.

I have learned that my husband can be at risk of getting breast cancer. This has changed the way that I look at life, I used to think the point was just to go on and get through with life, now I'm enjoying little things more often! Thank you for the new perspective.

This breast cancer month has made me think about all those extra products that I'm buying to support breast cancer. It makes me feel even better this year to know that I'm helping to support breast cancer research!

Breast Cancer effects me because it makes me feel vulnerable by knowing that I could have breast cancer if I don't eat healthier and get my body in shape. I also need to get regular check ups and mammograms.

I remember watching a T.V. show about women starting their lives over, one of the women had breast cancer and she had to tell her boyfriend that she had one or maybe both breasts removed. When I saw this, I felt so much compassion to help but there wasn't anything I could do at the time. This has now opened me up to all the things that breast cancer can do, it's a good thing that it gives you a wake up call and shows you who you're true friends and family members that stick to your side are but it's bad because it's cancer and it can grow.

Somehow, after reading all the blogposts about breast cancer this month, I realized that indeed the threat is there...and that I should really take care of myself more.

My Grandmother died years ago from Breast cancer. She would be proud to see all the work that people are doing today for Breast Cancer Awareness. Keep up the good work.

Denise said...

I had a aunt and cousin on my fathers side that bot survived both breasts being removed. I think recovery process depends on who you surround yourself with.
I believe there will be a cure and we need to band togeather as women and fight like only we can for the answers.

i am very fortunate that no one dear to me has been affected by breast cancer. however, i've read so many inspiring stories by people who made through this illness and not to mention, plenty of articles on breast cancer. Somehow or rather, this has changed my perspective on breast cancer. I've learnt that early detection is crucial and every woman should at least know how to do self checks and get themselves screened. It's very encouraging to know that there are so many organizations and events to raise awareness on breast cancer.

this mth has seriously brought alot of awareness of breast cancer in my life...i have been reading different stories to know how to take precautionary measures etc...

Kim said...

There was this lady I knew..well I didn't know her personally. She was the mailwoman and everyday she'd always have a nice warm smile on her face and we'd exchange hellos. One day it was a different person I wasn't familiar with.. I shook it off thinking maybe she is on vacation or something...She never came back. I learned later that she died of breast cancer - one she didn't even know she had until later.

Kathy said...

I do not know anyone that has breast cancer..but I really feel for those that do. God bless all of you..

I belong to a womans group called Soroptimist and we have had out of 30 woman 10 of them have had or currently have breast Cancer. Every year our group raises money and participates in Relay for life which is a 24 hour walk a thon at our local high school. What a great prize to auction off to generate more money for such a worth while cause.

My name is Stephanie and I have been somewhat affected by breast cancer. My teacher told us that she had breast cancer last year. Every student bought her pink stuff to show that we support her fight with it. She was very upset and nervous about it but we all stood by hersidethrough it all. She is a good teacher and nobody should have to go through that. With all of the support from the students she fought the cancer and won. Now everyone looks at breast cancer more seriously. She missed 6 weeks of school to make sure that she took care of it adn recovered. Now when ever I see a breast cancer item I think about all of the women in the world that are affected and knowing what my teacher went through I try to buy alot of those items so that I can help find the cure so no one else has to go through knowing that they have cancer.
