Pink – Tomorrow’s Blog

I try to mix humor into my blogs to keep them interesting and to keep you coming back.  Tomorrow’s blog is very serious and very important and if you only read one blog all year, please be sure it’s tomorrow’s.  Encourage your friends, co-workers and loved one’s to read tomorrow’s blog as well, especially if they are female.

Tomorrow’s blog is one woman’s story about surviving breast cancer.  I won’t reveal the “guest bloggers” name until tomorrow but it’s a local woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 28.  Many readers have already figured out who it is but I promise, you’ve never heard her story like you will tomorrow.

Tomorrow you will hear her story as only she can tell it.  The story will make you laugh and cry.  There’s a valuable lesson of hope and you’ll learn the importance of self breast exams, even in your twenties!

I’m glad the “guest blogger” agreed to tell her story in her own words because I could have never done it justice and she is able to say and share things that I would not be able, or comfortable, to myself. 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as a tribute to those friends and families affected I would encourage you to use the “Leave a Comment or Comments” link after tomorrow’s blog (please wait until tomorrow) and type the first name or relationship (i.e. sister, aunt, mother, grandmother, friend, etc…) of anyone you know affected by Breast Cancer.  The names will be posted for all of the world-wide web to see and will be a tribute to the strength of those affected and to show support for their battle. 

You should also feel free to leave a comment to let the “guest blogger” know how much you appreciate her being so open about her experience.  You will be moved after reading her story. 

Tomorrow’s blog is so important and so moving, I plan to leave it up for 2 days and I will run it at least two more times in October.  If you read it the first day, please check back the second day and click on the comments tab under the blog to see the names that have been posted and to add more.
