Stop hating on the pink!



I understand everyone is entitled to their own opinion. So here is mine lol. People! Stop hating on pink in October! The point is to draw attention to how horrible BC is and to get more women having mammos.

Yes, at times it is over kill.But guess what? That over kill has drawn a out pouring of support and attention to this cancer. Without all of that we would not have the advances we have today.

Now Granted seeing the Five Hour Energy with the pink ribbon boggled my mind, isn’t that stuff bad for you lol. Kinda like a pack of Camals all in pink. I Actually  was at the store this week and they had beer, yes beer in pink lmao. Nothing goes together then a ice cold beer and breast cancer!! But if catches someone eye and makes them realize they never had a mammo then it was well placed pink.

So, YES , I wear my pink( not my favorite color). If it draws someone’s interest into donating to ACS or to get a mammo then it has served its purpose!! Stop hating on the pink, its is helping to save lives!



About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!
