Let’s Go Pink Together: Inspiring Hope (Giveaway)

PinkTogether.com

I am sure many of you who are readers of my blog, remember the many posts about my mother through the past year after she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  Ever since that moment I crashed to the floor after she told me she had breast cancer (now clean bill of health), I have wanted nothing more than to make sure there is enough awareness to make a difference.  Whether it be through raising money for research or just an encouraging word to someone who is going through the situation my mother (and subsequently my aunt)went through I have wanted to make a difference.

Thanks to My Blog Spark I learned of a wonderful site, Pink Together.  Pink Together has started just that, an encouraging way to give back to those who are experiencing a difficult time in their lives. You can go and listen to the stories of those who have been through and are going through breast cancer and more importantly leave a message of encouragement or virtual bouquet of flowers to lift the spirits of someone who is  battling breast cancer themselves.

A little more about Pink Together from the sponsor:

The site is part of Pink Together®, a national campaign to support those impacted by breast cancer and to help raise awareness of the disease. To support Pink Together, General Mills is donating $2 million to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and is turning the packaging pink on an assortment of its most beloved brands. General Mills will also donate $1, up to $20,000, each time you post a comment of encouragement, send a virtual flower bouquet or share a story on PinkTogether.com in October.

This is truly a wonderful way to help support a cause as well as encouraging those who are in much need of encouraging during a hard time in their lives.  So head over to Pink Together and bring a smile to someone’s face today.  It’s the things we think are little that really make all the difference in the world.  And if you are a survivor please go share your story today, it just might be the extra push someone needs to make it through that last round of chemo or radiation.

WIN IT:

Pink Together

All of the gift basket items are from ShopKomen.com, where 25 percent of the merchandise purchase price benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure® in the fight against breast cancer.

    My mother inspires me because she has been through so much and always comes out with a positive attitude. She also gives so much of herself to her family and community.

    My comment of the woman who inspires you and why> would be my mom who passed away 10 years ago at the young age of 54 suffering 8 years prior of Bone cancer another terrible disese that can reach anyone young or old. She was a strong lady at heart and gave love to others and lived with the belief that she wanted to live until she died and she did just that never giving up and having hope. God Bless everyone who battles with cancer>keep the faith & the hope.

    My Aunt Genevieve inspires me on a daily basis. There were originally six children in their family, but three died in infancy. My Aunt Genevieve was diagnosed with breast cancer when she kept feeling a sharp pain in this one breast. She made it through only one round of chemo. Today she is a breast cancer survivor and donates time each week to go out and visit those who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer.

    Later, her brother and my uncle was diagnosed with bone cancer. He spent three miserable, painful years in a nursing home. This was because his doctor had misdiagnosed prostate cancer. Then my mom got sick and died of large cell melenoma in less than a month and a half. My Aunt Genevieve was the only sibling left alive. She has been like a mother to me. I have alot of health issues, and she is always there when I need her. It is not unusual for us to talk on the phone every day. I don’t think that I could have made it through these difficult times without her.

    Thank you,

    Christine

    I sent Molly a virtual flower. It is great to see stories where someone finds something very significant in their life to keep them going. In Molly’s case, it was her love of music that kept her strong. She is not a cancer survivor. Her story, along with many others, is very inspiring.
