I’ve been writing about my cousin Cez here and in my other blogs since she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. Despite her condition and struggles with the treatment she still possesses that positive attitude in life. I could be whining with a lot of things that beset me everyday but here is the person with a lot bigger problem than I am and still remain positive that she’ll be healed one day. Last June 28 was her 46th birthday and I called her up to greet her. It’s been a while since we last saw each other. What she tells me struck a chord master with me. She said she is thankful that she wakes up every day, she feels the love of her love ones and that she can still go to work. She’s an amazing person and deserve all the best things in life.

My cousin Cecil underwent mastectomy (removal of one or both breasts for the treatment or prevention of cancer – medline plus) early this year. She is undergoing series of treatment after the operation and I hope doctors will eventually declare her cancer-free after the treatment.
October is breast cancer awareness month. I’m joining the “Pink Ribbon Challenge” to help in the information dissemination campaign on breast cancer. The public should know more about breast cancer, its signs and symptoms, and ways to prevent it through observing a healthy lifestyle and teaching skills for early detection particularly breast self-examination.
