Pink Thursday

This week I am incorporating pink into my 
wardrobe with 
the objective of creating awareness.

I am also taking a moment to tell you about friends
or family members who have been touched by cancer.
Her name is Jessica and she is 37 years old.
She is an events manager at a hotel.
Last night we had pasta at her house.
We have been friends for about 20 years.
She found out she has breast cancer about one year ago.
Jessica had her regular check up and something came up.
The Doctor ordered a biopsy.
The biopsy came out negative BUT, her Doctor insisted she 
had whatever it was in there taken out.

When she went to get her biopsy stitches removed, the Doctor
gave her the talk: her results had come back and they were positive.

She has already gone through chemotherapy and tomorrow 
is her last session of radiotherapy.
She is still wearing her wig, has changed her eating habits 
and she is doing well.
I think one of the reasons that have helped her cope
so well is that she has a lot of faith which has provided her a lot
of comfort and her family, specially her mother
has been a true angel.

Wow... what a story. I wish good health for your friend. 37 is way too young to be wrestling with such a difficult illness.
