September Cancer Awareness Month

As you may recall from previous posts, September is one of my busiest and most favorite months!  
During September, the cancer community emphasizes focus on awareness of the following:
  • Childhood Cancer
  • Gynecological Cancer
  • Leukemia/Lymphoma
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Thyroid Cancer
This month holds profound significance to me as my dad continues to battle prostate cancer, while my uncle lost his brave fight two years ago.  My father-in-law lost his battle with leukemia, while my friend remains a fierce ovarian cancer survivor!  
I stand in awe of the many children I call "friend", who face the cruel reality of childhood cancer at such a tender & young age.  This serves as my constant reminder that cancer doesn't discriminate; not by age, gender, or ethnicity.
Please follow me as I provide insight and important facts of each of these types of cancers this month. 

Facing Cancer Together,
