“Coping”

 

Description from Colleen: October is breast cancer awareness month. For me, it is more a reminder of those of us coping with cancer of any type. Silver and blue is the ribbon color for that, so that is what inspired this pick. I'm lucky, the form of leukemia I have is controlled with medication that I will take for life and the side effects aren't too bad (lol, they aren't that great either). But always in my mind are people who have to go through more debilitating treatments. Or even people who are cured or in remission and still have to be reminded of the danger as they return to their oncologist for regular checks.

    As an Oncology nurse, I understand very well what you speak of…We’ve made many strides in the treatment of cancer…it can be a “chronic” illness like diabetis. But, it’s never that easy. We are all on a path….I will walk with you. Be well.

    Thanks for the words of support everyone. I do appreciate it. And I really do like how this pick turned out. I’d submit it for the contest, but that would just feel weird. But I definitely have to look into getting some or all of these items and making something with them.
