A TWO time survivor of the PEACH cancers; vulvar cancer(effects less than 3% of the female population) and endometrial/uterine cancer. Yeah I know, no one really wants to read that and it's kind of hard to say sometimes. It's okay to say breast cancer, it's like an everyday phrase because of all the PINK awareness in our society. Everyone knows that October is PINK month, but did you know that today June 4, 2017 the first Sunday of June is CANCER SURVIVORS DAY? I bet not, unless maybe you are a survivor.
Why do we celebrate #CancerSurvivorsDay ? It is the one day each year that communities across the globe come together to honor cancer survivors, to bring attention to the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship, and to show the world that life after a cancer diagnosis can be fruitful, rewarding, and inspiring.
From day one of my first diagnosis in 1998 I have always felt like just saying the word "cancer" sounded dirty. It will conjure up some kind of image for everyone, usually of something scary or sickly. Through my 'Hope Collection' I hope to conjure up images that reflect the beauty of fighting, surviving, hoping and WINNING.
Everyone doesn't survive and the fight continues for many. This fact alone make it difficult to celebrate being a survivor, but we must. We must celebrate to bring awareness. To continue the fight for those that have lost the battle, for those that continue the battle(especially for my friend Shelly as she continues her second round of chemo) and for those that will follow.
So here is my Celebration artwork for this year to honor the day and everyone that is involved - the survivors, their family, the friends near and far, those that have lost the battle...........this is for all of you! (I always get a little teary eyed writing about this stuff)
