This is my friend Liza. Her husband Brock and my husband John are good friends, so as good fortune would have it, I got the honor and privilege of Liza's friendship for a few short years. That is, before cancer took her from us. Anyone who knew Liza, could feel the strength of her spirit and know that she would either love you fiercely or loathe you intently. If you were the latter though, you probably deserved it. LOL
She was the healthiest human being I've ever met, a vegan, avid fitness enthusiast and lover of all things natural. She tried to get me to do a wheatgrass shot once. (Sorry Liza, the benefits are probably amazing I know, I know. I can still hear her voice telling me.)
I know we've heard it all before; the cliché: cancer does not discriminate. It took Liza from us at the ridiculous young age of 37. It came swift and with a heavy hand. She was gone before I think I could process that it could ever really happen to me. We've become so numb and used to the all-too-common occurrence of this disease, that we overlook the possibility of the realness that it could be us next. But we need to be on high alert. We need to be aware.
I did have a scare. It didn't take too long before it was my turn to face the music with breast cancer. And I'll be super vigilant about my screenings from here on out. Read more about my story here.
You shouldn't need someone to tell you why you should support the thousands of organizations changing the face of breast cancer research as we know it. I believe the evidence is self substantiated. All of us know someone in our lives who has been affected by this terrible disease and eradicating it forever is the ONLY way forward.
