The month of October is dedicated to breast cancer awareness; and to show their support for such a cause, i heart faces’ theme this week is all about “Pink”.
Cancer awareness is an important subject to me; but breast cancer awareness truly holds a place near and dear to my heart. My grandmother lost her battle with breast cancer in the early 80s and every year I take part in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in memory of her. She was an amazing woman! I hate that her life was cut so short. She would have absolutely adored my boys and they would have worshiped the ground she walked on.
I was hoping to have a more profound “Pink” photo for this week but I just couldn’t think of anything.
The following photo is not only of pink cheeks and pink lips; but the little girl pictured is a representation of the next generation - a generation in which hopefully the cure for this terrible disease will finally be discovered.
To see more “Pink” photos or to join in yourself or if you would just like to make a contribution towards breast cancer research and awareness, head on over to i heart faces.
