My support of breast cancer awareness will never fade. For some it’s fulfilling to walk the walks, make donations, or wear the colors, I however, prefer to take a step back now that I have had a very personal connection to the disease. Experiencing the high of surviving breast cancer myself (almost 8 years) and the agony of losing my sister to the same disease, I have mixed feelings about wearing the banner on my sleeve. I want to support the cause but I want to do it in a way that I can be most useful. I don’t want to be loud, I want to listen. I want to hear the struggles and concerns of someone fighting the disease or listen to someone who has lost a love one. That is my contribution for now. How do you support?
