Pink Is Not Just A Color.....

For those struggling with breast cancer, pink is definitely not just a color.

Here is what some breast cancer survivors have to say about pink:

I embrace the color pink. I gather strength from it,” said Frankie Lang, a breast cancer survivor from Lubbock.

“It identifies me as a survivor and a fighter for the cure,” said Nancy Horn.

“It represents strong, courageous, fighter, empowered, educated, faith, warrior and every other characteristic that helps us survive,” said Margarita Olivarez.

“To me pink represents femininity, which I now consider important,” said Wendy Kaufman, who started radiation treatment last month. “You may not realize how important it is until you lose your hair, lose your eyelashes and eyebrows ,and then lose your breasts. You don’t look like a woman anymore or feel like one.”

Margrave said “I discovered my cancer because I was faithful to have my mammograms yearly,” she said. “Using pink as a reminder to all women symbolizes the need for early detection. Wear your pink proudly and help save lives.”

What does pink mean to you???

For me -

Pink isn't just a color, it's an attitude!

oh how I love this, Esther. thank you for the beautiful card and post. the quotes really do sum it up so well. these days I feel that I HAVE to wear pink to let other people know that I am still a woman even though cancer has taken away my feminine looks. I'm getting weepy as I read your post. it's all so true.
