Final 2016 Voices of Love Winners
As October passes and all the pink is laid aside, I get the opportunity to highlight the words of encouragement from our final Voices of Love winners.
Something unique to this month’s winners is how much even just a couple words can mean. In fact, one of our winners won on a single word comment. I encourage you to pass these on to other women facing a new breast cancer diagnosis.
Stop and –.
Whether you’ve just heard the words “breast cancer” or you’re facing a new change in your treatment, take a moment to breathe.
Patience in the Journey
“As a five year survivor of triple negative breast cancer, be patient with yourself. Realize that this is a new journey that has many ups and downs, but reach out for support. Don’t try to be strong for everyone else, [or] you’ll find yourself exhausted. You will get through this. Faith, prayers, family, embrace them.” -Gayle Nguyen
Courage and Confidence
“Hope is living with Courage and Confidence, not fear.” -Francine Wismann
It’s okay to feel fear. We all do, but grab hold of the courage to face down this disease and the confidence that you are a whole and complete woman, no matter what happens.
Enjoy and share!
