In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, my Mom and I had a Sleep Pinkparty. The Sleep pink party is to raise funds for The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer to support finding a cure. Finding a cure for Breast Cancer is near and dear to us because one of my Mom’s friends is a 12 year breast cancer survivor, she told us what she went through and how hard it was. She told us the one thing she regretted about getting sick was not telling anyone she had breast cancer she wished she had a support system when she was sick. She said that you need good friends and family with you, a good support system if you are going through something like this.
My brother also has been affected by Breast Cancer, his Best friends Mother succumbed to the disease and passed away, she was a beautiful person inside and out and i am so blessed to have known her. This is why breast cancer awareness is so important to me. Did you know that every three minutes someone is diagnosed with breast cancer in this country? About 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. In 2011, an estimated 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 57,650 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. This why it’s very important to do a Self- examination monthly, this is a step by step guide. http://women.webmd.com/breast-self-examination or make an appointment for a Mammogram.
It was an all pink themed party, we made cupcakes and frosted them with pink frosting. Also we decided to give each other a make over! Which was so much fun, my mom was making me laugh so much i almost ended up with pink lipstick all over my face. We also made some yummy pink lemonade.
My Dog Snoopy was a bit jealous we were having so much fun, so he decided to join in on the festivities.
