Day 1: I was asked by a friend to complete the ten day selfie challenge for breast cancer awareness and on each new day to challenge someone new. The challenge hits close to home for me because my own grandmother chose my mother’s life over treatment for a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer while she was pregnant. There were very few options back then, none very hopeful, and if she was going to fight for something, she chose to fight for her child. She gave birth to the most amazing woman I know, never leaving that hospital, never having the chance to see her own legacy grow. She was amazing….she passed her spirit on to my mom, a force of nature unto herself. My mother taught me to always find the good in every situation and every person. She taught me the power of laughter in healing. She astounds me to this day. Her mother left a grande legacy to the world in my own mother. For my mother, and for my grandmother, I fight for you.
