*This is a repeat of today’s post for those that subscribe in reader form. I sent the first batch out incorrect! It was too important to not have the new blogs web address correct. The link below is correct. Thank you for so many kind words and support. Please visit thepowerofpink.me and read my sister’s story. Love, Me*
I have put off this post for a week or two now and I don’t really know why.
I keep telling myself that I am waiting for the right time.
That I’m not ready…..
But I think it is just the fact that sometimes reality “bites” and we put off facing it.
This is one of those times.
I am going to keep this brief today as I want the focus elsewhere.
In the last sixty days both of my sisters have been slapped in the face with breast cancer.
THE LAST SIXTY DAYS.
One sister received a diagnosis two months ago of non-invasive ductal carcinoma. She endured a lumpectomy and we all breathed a sigh of relief. Glad that she caught it early, happy it was out. Shortly after, another sister received a diagnosis of invasive ductal carcinoma.
Once the doctors realized that my one sister had the invasive form, they immediately wanted to treat my other sister with the NON invasive form with radiation.
So, here we are.
One sister began radiation yesterday. She will have 33 treatments.
The other sister is scheduled for a mastectomy on September 6th.
Both have young children.
Both have fears.
And what can I do?
I can pray.
I can be there for them.
I can worry……….
But my heart aches.
And I want to do more.
So, today I am sharing with you a new blog that I am starting. I will still keep YouAreTalkingTooMuch.com. This is separate and I am not sure where it will go. It is not MY blog and you will understand that when you visit it. I will have to see where God leads it.
I am also sharing with you a new Facebook page that I have started. Same thing…..not sure of where it will go. It is not my page.
I just want to give my sisters more ammunition.
You know….for years I saw the pink ribbons.
And I thought I understood.
I thought, I got it.
I had NO clue.
It is not about a pink ribbon.
It is about the power of the pink ribbon.
Today, I am asking all of my readers to help empower my sisters but to empower women everywhere.
And until it “isn’t“……
Then we will fight it……..
Please pray for my family.
You can visit my new blog at www.thepowerofpink.me. Please follow it as I begin to tell the story of my sister and her fight against breast cancer. There are so many wonderful sites out there. Please don’t think I think this is something special. It is hopefully just one more place to empower those facing breast cancer.
I ask that you also like the Facebook page that goes with it. http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Power-Of-Pink/438398702870933?ref=hl.
Please share both with as many people as you can. Get the story out and may we empower women everywhere in honor of my sisters.
As you read my sisters story on www.thepowerofpink.me, would you take the time to give her encouragement? I would appreciate it.
I love you all.
