BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH IN OCTOBER







As you know October is international breast cancer awareness month.
There are a lot of events and things going on here in my town to put focus on the disease that is the biggest killer among women here in Denmark.

I’m going to do my bit to make people aware of it.
I’m having an exhibition at my local library in October.
All the effects that I have bought and received the past few years will be on display.
Pins, bracelets, jewellery, teddy bears, bags and even my blue wig;)
I’ve got some brochures from the cancer foundation and I have some business cards I’ve made with the pink bow on, and my email if anyone wants to ask me a question about the exhibition.
I’ll take some pictures so you can see it if you’re interested….


This years bracelet


This evening my parents and I went to an event in the church. It marked the opening of the breast cancer month and it was a really beautiful experience.
When we arrived we all got a candle, and after the welcome and two psalms, we all lit the candles and placed them around the alter. We were supposed to remember someone who died or struggled when we did it. ( I was being selfish and lit the candle for myself)
Then the priest talked about loss and hope, and what he said made me cry…..he talked about how you loose so many things when you get sick and how you can’t be all you want for your family and friends. That touched me deeply.
Then they had a local union choir sing some songs…..my Mum told me after that it was fun looking at me when they sang, because she could see from my facial expression when they didn’t sing proper;)

I’ll probably bore you throughout the month with events and stuff, so now you have been warned..
♥love you all♥

I'm working a huge event this Friday for women dealing with cancer that the hospital I work for puts on. We normally have around 200 women come for the day. We do fun things like spa treatments and shopping along with informational sessions. I will be thinking about you during!

Post lots of photos of your exhibit.

Hi Pippii

I followed a link here from garvaldmains' post. My mom has just been diagnosed with breast cancer, and right now we're just dealing with the shock as a family. My mom's my sister and best friend as well, so I've been struggling a lot with the diagnosis. Reading about your experience and survival gives me hope. Best of luck!

Take care

Thank you so much for your kind words honey.
I am so sorry to hear about your mom and how your family have struggled with cancer.
Do you know what kind of treatment your mom will have?
Do you mind if I friend you so I can keep an eye on you and maybe see what happens??
You can ask Dix, I´m not a stalker;)
I truly wish the best for your mom and your family.

Thanks so much for the good wishes and the add. I added you back this morning but didn't get a chance to type out a reply until now.

Mum's undergoing chemotherapy first because the doc said they need to reduce the area over which the cancer has spread. Then she's headed for a mastectomy followed by radiation therapy. I think the shock hasn't worn off for us, but knowing the treatment plan has definitely helped give us something to focus on.

Also I forgot to say before, but I hope your exhibition went well. Keep in touch!

Take care
Tina

I wish the best for your Mum, I´ve been through the same, and it is a big shock and will be hard on her and you all, but having a great family like it seems you have will make it easier....
Thank you for your kind words honey, the exhibition looks good.

If I can pursuade you to pm me your address, I have a little something I would love to send you.

♥big hugs to you and your family♥

And please pm or mail me if you ever want to just talk, rant or maybe need some advice;)
