Please forgive the lateness of getting this post out. Yesterday was one of those days of appointments, migraines, activities that just put me down. Those sure are no fun. But I am thankful that the day is over and I did indeed survive it!
This week I am thankful for:
~ The Susan G Komen foundation! They have taken up the cause of Breast Cancer like crazy. They are getting the word out about mammograms and education. I see their posters in our Women’s Health offices and the month of October is now pink, thanks to their efforts. I am thankful for their efforts in giving women hope during this battle. Keep it up!!
~ Mobile mammogram trucks. In the parking lot of the imaging office sat a pink ribbon truck. On the side of this truck it boldly stated “Mobile Mammogram Imaging”. These trucks will go to the home of a person who wants a mammogram! The truck will come to you!! That is a blessing! It’s not a whole lot easier than that, now it is?
~ Pink Ribbon 5K races. There are 5K races throughout the month of October for survivors and loved ones to put rubber to their battles. I love that!! I have never had the pleasure of doing one yet, but I will!!! I intended to do the 5K in DC the fall they moved us up here to Alaska. That one would have been awesome! If you would like to find a race in your area, you can find that here.
~ My sister. My baby sister does this walk every year. I am always proud of her effort as she gets a team together and walks in her effort to “Save the Ta-Ta’s” Way to go April!
~ I am so thankful that researchers have come so far with this disease. I am thankful for the hours they spend staring at microscopes and working that formula just one more time.
~ Thank you! I thank my readers and visitors for your patience as I spend these 31 days remembering Patty. It has been a lot of fun!
What are you thankful for this week?
