You may be wondering how can I support Breast Cancer and leave a legacy? 27 Miracles got involved with supporting breast cancer organizations back in 2008 as it was something that they believed in supporting. It became a reality when Adriana, friend or Wedding Planner Rosie Moore, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. The battle was not an easy one for Adriana as she continued to work and maintain an “as normal life” for her baby boy. She always had a smile on her face and looking to see how she could help others. One of the things that Adriana always said, was that she wanted to leave a legacy for all to remember her, especially her baby boy. In February 2010, Adriana lost the battle with breast cancer but she left her legacy behind. To all women, get help. mammogram screenings and make memories with your family and capture them.
On the same note, another friend of Rosie’s, Barbie, was also going through the same battle, breast cancer . Barbie tells her story of how she almost cancelled her mammogram because she was too busy preparing for her trip to Alaska and just busyness with the kids. She went to her mammogram only to find that she had a very advanced breast cancer diagnosis. Life changed drastically as it does for all who is diagnosed.Cancer does not ask permission to come if it is the right time or not, it just shows up. After intense chemo and radiation, Barbie beat the cancer, today she is a 5 year survivor!!
Today organizations like Susan G Komen, help women obtain mammograms and to be educated on breast cancer.
“Susan G. Komen fought breast cancer with her heart, body and soul. Throughout her diagnosis, treatments, and endless days in the hospital, she spent her time thinking of ways to make life better for other women battling breast cancer instead of worrying about her own situation. Moved by Susan’s compassion for others and commitment to making a difference, Nancy G. Brinker promised her sister that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer.
Though Susan lost her battle with the disease, her legacy lives on through the work of Susan G. Komen, the organization Nancy started in her honor.”
