I Wear Pink for My Mom

I Wear Pink for My Mom

It's October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in honor of that I'm wearing PINK outfit from head to toe. Over the years, a loop of pink ribbon has come to symbolize breast cancer awareness, and today the image of a pink ribbon can be found emblazoned on thousands of products, from apparel to dishware to office supplies. But there is  much more to awareness than just wearing pink. Let's talk about that for a moment. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.

Now, I'm going to share something personal with you. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in July this year. At that moment, no amount of heartbreak or physical pain could compare to what I felt upon learning that my mother was battling breast cancer. Right after her surgery in August, she was dealing with a lot of complications. She is currently recovering and have scheduled radiotherapy treatments for November. But my mom is not just a statistic. She is so much more than that. Cancer will not define her, and neither should it define other women battling the same disease. My mother is loving, understanding, and strong. With or without cancer, she continues to be the same person and refuses to let this disease control how she lives her life. Through this experience, I have not only learned that my mom is the strongest person I know, but it also taught me to never take life for granted. She inspired me to live every second of my life to the fullest and follow every single one of my dreams no matter how impossible they may seem. She is my hero and my inspiration! Love you mom!

 

Oktobar je mesec borbe protiv raka dojke i zbog toga sam za danasnji post izabrala roze odevnu kombinaciju od glave do pete. Tokom godina, roze masnica postala je simbol borbe protiv raka dojke, i danas sliku te masnice mozemo naci na hiljadama proizvoda...od garderobe do kancelarijske opreme. Medjutim, u borbi protiv ove opake bolesti mozemo uraditi mnogo vise od pukog nosenja roze boje i ruzicastih masnica. Trebalo bi konstantno skretati pažnju na rasprostranjenost ove bolesti, na podizanje svesti o značaju prevencije i ranog otkrivanja raka dojke, kao i o zbrinjavanju osoba obolelih od ove bolesti. Rak dojke je trenutno vodeća maligna bolest kod žena kako u razvijenim tako i u zemljama u razvoju. U Srbiji se svake godine registruje oko 4600 novoobolelih žena od karcinoma dojke, a oko 1600 žena izgubi život. Veći broj smrtnih slučajeva žena obolelih od raka dojke javlja se u zemljama u razvoju zbog  dijagnostikovanja raka dojke u kasnoj fazi, uglavnom zbog nedostatka svesti o potrebi ranog otkrivanja, kao i zbog nedostatka resursa u zdravstvenom sistemu.Kada se rak dojke otkrije u ranoj fazi uz adekvatnu dijagnostiku i lečenje, šanse za izlečenje i produžetak života su daleko veće nego u slučajevima kada se ova bolest otkrije u kasnoj fazi.

Sada cu podeliti nesto sasvim licno sa vama. Mojoj majci je dijagnostikovan rak dojke u julu ove godine. U tom momentu, niti jedna kolicina emocionalne i fizicke boli ne bi mogla da se poredi sa onim sto sam osecala kada sam saznala da se moja mama bori sa ovom opakom bolescu. Odmah nakon njene operacije u avgustu, usledile su komplikacije. Trenutno se oporavlja i ima zakazane  radioterapije za novembar. Ali, moja mama nije samo statisticki podatak. Ona je mnogo vise od toga. Rak nije ono sto nju definise, niti bi trebalo da definise ni sve one zene koje se bore protiv ove bolesti. Moja majka je hrabra ali u isto vreme i nezna, puna razumevanja...zena velikog srca. Sa ili bez raka, ona nastavlja da bude ista osoba, odbijajuci da ova bolest diktira nacin na koji ce ona ziveti svoj zivot. Kroz ovo iskustvo, uverila sam se da je moja majka najjaca osoba koju znam, a u isto vreme sam shvatila i da zivot ne treba shvatati olako. Ona me inspirise da zivim svaki sekund svoga zivota najbolje sto umem i da sledim svoje snove ma koliko oni mozda izgledali nemoguci. Ona je moj heroj i moja inspiracija! Volim te mama!
