Pink – A Month of Awareness and also Celebration

As most know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I was diagnosed ten years ago this coming November 3. Whether you’re a woman or a man, it’s important to be diligent in self-checks or diagnostic screening as necessary. Please know that you are precious. Take care of you!

I thought I’d share with you a post I shared on the day I was diagnosed. Sometimes you have to dig deep in life’s challenges, pull up those boot straps and go to it. I hope this is an encouragement to you, or to another that might be battling that you w ant to share with. You can find it HERE. I did not fight alone, and I’m so grateful for your love, concern, prayers and support. Thank you!!

This past week, I’m was excited to qualify for a trial study to detect early cancers that are often diagnosed in later stages. Some of these include pancreatic and ovarian cancer. It will be a three-year study, and will help future generations. All this by a simple blood draw. I currently have two dear friends who are battling ovarian and pancreatic cancer. Anything to help detect this awful disease early.

Lastly, I wanted to share with you some beautiful Limited Edition Mark Kay product being released this week in many shades of pink. Mary Kay is celebrating 60 years of offering women and others an amazing business opportunity and product. So much fun. Want to know more about the product? Feel free to send me an email at

Wishing all a great week!
