Pink Perfect

I love pink. I shamefully admit during a portion of the 5h grade I pretended that I didn’t like the color. Obviously, that was only to seem cool (I mean I was still playing with Barbies). Today, I am posting to prove that pink is an even cooler color than it ever was. It is known that pink is the color of breast cancer awareness. While it isn’t February, it is the day before a best friend of one of my best friends (someone who I have traveled with and come to know) is undergoing a double mastectomy. While it may not seem like a huge deal to many people, the big deal is that she is 29 and she doesn’t have breast cancer. BUT- she recently tested positive for the BRCA2 gene,  which means she has an extremely high risk of getting breast or ovarian cancer in her lifetime.

While it may seem extreme to some, I find it to be very brave and admirable. Lesley has an amazing travel blog called The Road Les Traveled. She explores the world for all of her followers to see, and it is comforting to know she can keep doing that without having to worry about the evil of cancer putting an end to her travel plans.

What can you do? Wear pink today! Support Lesley Murphy as she undergoes this life changing procedure tomorrow. Support all the women who have faced breast cancer and support all the women who are fighting the battle as we speak.

  1. Best thoughts to your friend for a speedy recovery from her procedure — that’s a very brave decision for a 29 year old to make. You have provided a beautiful collection of photos to honor her.

  2. I love pink and always have! Hope your young friend does well. A very hard decision, but a wise one, I think. Breast cancer has also touched my family, for the first time that I know of.
    Yes, to pink for breast cancer awareness and support!
