In Loving Memory & Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

There is a profile on Instagram which is hosting Breast Cancer Awareness Month challenges/linkups (including other cancer awareness) with donations going to the cancer awareness charity of the winners choice.

As cancer has touched my family many times, I was happy to show my support and join them in putting the word out. The idea was to choose a ribbon colour for the cancer awareness charity we were supporting and explain why we are supporting that charity.

Below is my first post:

PINK (Breast Cancer). My first submission for the Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge. My mother is a two time survivor. I am also a high risk candidate and had a scare earlier this year.

My second post:

WHITE (Lung Cancer) & PINK (Breast Cancer).
White to honour my children's paternal Grandma who lost her battle with Lung Cancer in 2008. Both White & Pink to honour a dear friend who lost her battle with Lung Cancer (secondary to Breast Cancer) only a few weeks ago. And Pink, again to honour my mother.

My third post (today):

LAVENDER (All Cancers). In honour of my children's Great Aunt (their Grandma's sister) who was taken 3 weeks ago today (on their Grandma's birthday) after a 10 year battle with Bowel Cancer. Today we attended her Memorial service & celebrated her life. A life full of love, courage, strength, laughter and rising above adversity.

My children also lost their paternal Grandfather to Pancreatic Cancer in 1996.

I think I'd choose yellow for prostate cancer.
