Hold onto your….

TITS! This summer, not long after my double mastectomy I was fortunate enough to go for a weekend to a friends cabin. We enjoyed the warm weather, good company and a lot of laughs. It was possible because my dear friends that I went with have also been cautious with COVID and kept their bubbles very small.

During this trip we were driving around on the lake. It was a glorious day, the sun was hot, the wind was gentle, and there was barely a cloud in the sky. There were many boats out on the lake and there were moments of rocking and upheaval from the waves mixed with moments of calm. During one particularly wavy moment one friend said “Hold onto your tits!” My response “HA. I can’t”

Being breast cancer awareness month I am acutely aware of some of the interesting things that we say to ‘raise awareness’. For me I find most (not all) of these things funny, but do they really raise awareness?

“Save second base!” “MANogram – place breasts here”

Much of the commentary surrounding breast cancer awareness is regarding the erogenous nature of breasts. Yet breast cancer doesn’t just show up in the breasts – it can be discovered initially when metastasized to other areas; and breast cancer can happen to anyone, including men.

Regardless – there is much that can be done to support breast health or hormonal health for those that have had their breasts removed. Information is key. This is why I thought it would be wonderful to team up with two women whom I respect immensely to provide a presentation BY DONATION to give a holistic discussion on breast health from a nutritional, mental, and physical perspective.

I would love if you would join us!
