We survived. We got through Breast Cancer Awareness month. October aka Pinktober aka Crooktober aka Stinktober is my least favorite month of the year. Why? Because it isn’t helpful to us who are living with Stage IV and then it ends and no one pays attention any longer.
Living with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer is a 24/7, 365 day per year experience. Those of us living with it never get a day off and it only ends when we’re dead. Think about that. Don’t stop paying attention just because one month is over.
