october is national breast cancer awareness month. most of us are touched by this disease in some way; through the lives of our mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers, friends, or co-workers, the connections are endless and ever intertwining. according to the national cancer institute, 1 in 8 women in the u.s. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in her life.
in honor of national breast cancer awareness month, lifetime is airing an original movie, called five (directed by jennifer aniston, alicia keys, demi moore, patty jenkins & penelope spheeris). a compilation of 5 short films about 5 different women, depicting how their lives have been impacted by breast cancer, and how their individual experiences ultimately bring them together. it’s a beautiful film that speaks to women from all walks of life, different socioeconomic statuses, ages and ethnic backgrounds. breast cancer does not discriminate.
what inspires me about breast cancer is how families, friends, and strangers come together for ONE reason: to support the women in their lives. through organizations we can support the women who are fighting cancer, who have fought and won the battle with cancer, and who have fought and lost the battle with cancer.
support the women in your life, whether she has battled with breast cancer or not. to all the women out there, take care of yourselves and seek out the preventative care appropriate to your age. eat well. be well.
w o m e n are strong beings. we are the bearers of life and nurturers of the soul.
a song from the classic 1950s classic musical funny face with audrey hepburn (my favorite actress of all time!) & fred astaire.
sending my love to all of the breast cancer survivors and women who’ve fought the battle and may have lost. you are true warriors of life. to my tita nenit, you are a woman of inspiration and strength. i love you! xo
