October, Pink and Leather Feathers

Can you believe we are in October? It’s Pumpkin Spice Latte time, preparing for the holidays, enjoying Fall traditions, gathering with family and friends, and more.

Recently, I created the below feathers in my favorite color combo. Pink is such a significant color for so many, including myself. as a Breast Cancer survivor. I’m grateful to be able to stick another feather in my hat, significant of another year blessed to be here on Earth.

I qualified for, and went in this last week for a trial study. This is the second study to help early detection for cancers like pancreatic and ovarian . These types of cancers usually aren’t diagnosed until the later stages when they are more difficult to treat. I’m thrilled to be a part of research and to help others fight cancer. Crazy thing is, I have two friends who are currently battling pancreatic and ovarian.

I wanted to wish you each a very great start of October full of special memories and amazing moments. I encourage you to stick another feather (accomplishment) in your hat this month, including doing self checks or making a screening appointment as necessary. Enjoy life to the fullest. Each day is a gift!

Take care.
