My family has been touched by breast cancer. Some of the women in my family have survived it. Others have not. I have seen and experienced the toll breast cancer takes on the individual and those around them. The women in my family affected by breast cancer will live in my memory as strong, beautiful women and I appreciate the work that groups such as this do to end breast cancer forever.

I lost an aunt to breast cancer, and feel sad for anyone else who has lost someone in their family to breast cancer.

I was at the Run for the Cure recently and I was struck by how many people there were, all of whom had been touched in some way by breast cancer. It's good to know there is so much support out there and I hope it can stop breast cancer from hurting so many people. I am proud of the strength of everybody there to stand up and do something about it.

I had a teacher in high school who was diagnosed with breast cancer. I could only imagine her struggle. I admire her so much and the fact that she never let any of her pain show. She was a very strong woman and I will never forget her courage.

It makes me so happy to see everything from dog collars to phones to spoons to pink in support of this important cause!

My best friend has breast cancer and so did her mother, who died at the age of only 54. My best friend is 8 or 9 years free of cancer and i have a lot of hope for her for the future. Her mother's death occurred twenty years ago in September, and my friend and i spoke of doing something in her memory, as a memorial to her, but also as a healing ritual for my friend who is still dealing with her grief.

I work to prevent breast cancer because of my high school music teacher, who, when I asked one day, showed me her mastectomy scars. A few years later, a young friend at work was diagnosed, and lost her breasts, too. There are too many chemicals in the environment contributing to this horrible disease - so I work to help get rid of them, and raise awareness around it, beyond the pink ribbon.

Every time I see the pink ribbons I think that there is strength in uniting for the cause of breast cancer.

I was lucky that I got to keep my mom- she's a breast cancer survivor and has been in remission for 7 years.

I know everyone with breast cancer is so courageous. My niece has breast cancer and just being around her up lifts me. she is so positive and I think that helps more then anything and her belief in God. I pray for each of you with breast cancer and pray for a cure soon.

I have met several survivors this past year, and I never stop being impressed by their strength and courage. I'd wear a pink ribbon over another color any day!

My mum was diagnosed with Breast Cancer two years ago, she is the first woman in our family to get diagnosed with Breast Cancer, it all came as a shock and after two years of treatment, going through chemo and getting herceptin we thought she had the all clear - going for a recent check up at the hospital the doctors have found another lump, they think it may be scar tissue... lets hope so. I urge all women to self examine on a regular basis. I never really bothered until mum was diagnosed now I do on a regular basis. You never think it will be someone close to you... but it just proves that any one can be the first in a family to get it. Its a really hard time to go through but you have to keep fighting.

As a woman, breast cancer is something that I think about often. I have such admiration and respect for women who have overcome this disease, and feel sorrow for those who were not as fortunate. My good friend lost his mother to breast cancer, and I know he strongly supports the research and awareness events year-round, not just in October. I have hope that one day women will not have to worry about breast cancer.

Last year I had the pleasure of working with the Breast Cancer Fund and meeting a woman by the name of Sherry Miller. Sherry joined BCF's Climb Against the Odds event to raise money to eliminate the environmental causes of cancer. She was 50, undergoing her 5th round of chemotherapy and was training to climb a mountain - a feat that required her to wake up at midnight and climb for a straight twelve hours. Because she was in Reno it was months before I met her and by the time I did I had built her up into this huge supernatural character. I was surprised that she was so soft-spoken and that she wasn't the 6-foot giant I had envisioned. This was Sherry's second year of climbing and in her first year the summit had eluded her. She was going for it in a huge way. On July 10, 2006 to the cheers of her rope team, Sherry stood on Mt. Shasta's 14,000 ft. summit and cried out, “I am alive, I am well and I am at one with the mountain!” When they relayed the message down to us it was amazing. Perfect strangers were embracing in celebration of their friends' successes. Sherry was taken from us in April 2007. She was one of the Breast Cancer Fund's most active advocates and truly believed (even in her last days) that prevention is possible. Sherry always wanted women to question the chemicals in our environment. This Breast Cancer Awareness Month I want to remember Sherry and the work that she continues to inspire with the Breast Cancer Fund. *To donate to BCF, click on my name and you'll be directed to the Breast Cancer Fund's donation page. Thanks for your support!
