Among all the celebrations of survivorship, women with advanced breast cancer can often feel forgotten in the month of October. That’s why ShareTheLittleThings.com exists — to offer the metastatic community a place to be heard, and to provide a forum for women with advanced disease to recognize they are not alone.
It works like this: Head on over to ShareTheLittleThings.com, and post on the wall a story, a photo, a feeling, a quote, a piece of art, anything that pays tribute to living and coping with breast cancer. It’s really a seamless and simple process. (I just did it — see if you can find the above photo on the wall.) Then scroll around and gain strength from what others have shared. It’s hard not to be motivated and inspired!
You’ve got to check it out to really grasp the power of this place. And if you decide to add to the wall while you’re there, $1 will go toward supporting both the Metastatic Breast Cancer Network and Living Beyond Breast Cancer (up to $20,000).
Oh, and by the way, October 13 is Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
Note: That’s a BondiBand headband in the photo above. Discounts on cancer-themed bands and hats now, through October 31, 2010.
