We Are More than One Month

As'salamu Alaikum and Peace to any who visit!


Think Pink sister's! October is here and the PSA's are running for National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Oh, I don't want to think about it! may be thinking to yourself. Hey, not my favorite chat talk either and why? Maybe it's because we lost our sister, mom, daughter or best friend to Breast Cancer. You could be a survivor who still can't look at or touch the scars from your own mastectomy.

Alhamdulillah, as women we pour out so much of our strength and time for any and everyone except ourself. Don't we deserve to feel better and keep healthy for ourselves? As my sisters I love you all for the sake of Allah (SWT). As women in general regardless of our beliefs and backgrounds Breast Cancer doesn't care who it captures. There are of course women who are more prone to Breast Cancer because of family genetics and history.

This is just a plea to ALL WOMEN, make the time, and make an appointment to get checked. The best that can happen is you find your are cancer free insha Allah...and, if you discover you have it, then get your support and strength from thoses who matter most to you. Make "your" own plan of action to fight and insha Allah survive. Let's take care of our bodies all through the year because, we are more than just one month. For all the medical providers, researchers, educators and Survivors fighting for a cure...YOU ROCK!

A billion pink hugs & notes from Nazeeha!
