Today is Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day. It's the ONLY day in the month of October set aside to honor the women who have terminal breast cancer. These are the faces of about 1/3 of an online support group of women with advanced breast cancer (ABC). We are all daughters, some of us sisters, some of us aunts, some of us mothers, some of us wives, all of us friends. We are as young as 28 years old and as old as over 60. Many of these women had early stage diagnoses years ago. Some of the women in this photo are already on the other side of eternity. These faces (as well as anyone who has had breast cancer) are the reasons we need more research for more effective treatments.
_I believe we all have a story. This blog records my story and how I've lived with breast cancer both as a primary disease and a terminal disease. I believe this is all a part of God's story for my life. This blog unapologetically includes all areas of my life: my faith, my family and my advocacy for change in the metastatic breast cancer world.
