pink for october :: websites turn pink for breast cancer awareness
the picture is actually a css interactive mosaic of 500+ sites turned pink to promote breast cancer detection + awareness + to honor survivors + victims + promote research efforts to conquer breast cancer!
i encourage all bloggers to go pink for october!
monday, i flunked my heart scan, so my herceptin infusions are suspended (i have 9 months of them to go). they'll scan my heart again in 4 weeks + then every 4 weeks after that + if my heart ever gets strong enough, they'll restart the herceptin, because it's supposed to prevent cancer spread in my type of aggressive her2neu breast cancer that's likely to recur + spread. so they'll try to balance the heart damage against the life-saving prevention of spread benefit. i'm so grateful not to have spread yet + feel so sorry for those who have + are losing or have lost their lives. + it's not fair that other cancers don't get so much press + fund raising + a month of awareness. i feel for those with all cancers like uterine, ovarian, prostate, colon, lung, pancreas, stomach, bone, blood, liver, brain, skin, "nondetermined origin" + any cancer + i hope that advances in treatment for breast cancer bring advances in treatment + prevention of all cancer.
i hope they figure this out soon! i don't want mod*tot to go through what her mom, grandma, 3 great grandmas + a great-great grandma suffered.

Bless you, Mod*mom. I'm rooting for you.
I've gone pink too.
Mod*Mom, all of my positivity has been sent into the universe for you and I wish you health and healing. I don't live far from you. Is there anything you need? Anything I can do? **Anything?**
Dear Mod*Mom, you are personal inspiration for me...all the way from Marrakesh. Just thought you should know. Fingers and toes crossed for you.
