Did you know?

While I’ve added my own words and experiences to the blog posts, the informative metastatic breast cancer graphics were created by Andrea Parker, who was born only a few months earlier than I in 1978. Andrea created the graphics with Ginny Knackmuhs offering the statistical information for them.

Andrea’s life was stolen by MBC in September 2018, at the age of 40. Another young woman, a fierce advocate who sought to increase awareness about MBC, worked to educate the public about this disease, while pleading for more research funding to decrease the death rate, currently at #116dyingdaily, from this insidious disease.

I’ve tried to continue what she started, to focus on education each October, which is sometimes called Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Will you take up the mantle? Will you educate others every October after I’m gone?
