From the beginning of my cancer journey I’ve wanted nothing to do with ribbons, bracelets or anything that advertised away from my blog that I had Multiple Myeloma. I would be happy to support you. I wore an FU cancer bracelet for a friend, but for my own cause, no thanks!
I am so grateful to the charitable community that has raised millions in support of finding cures and supporting these amazing hospitals. I’ve just never wanted to raise my own cancer flag, possibly making me realize every time I look at it, that it’s me that needs the cure.
Today while in the hospital gift shop, one I have gone into many times over this past year and a half, I noticed the glass jars filled with the different colors representing each cancer City Of Hope treats. I walked over and decided to look at what color represents me. It actually shook me up, why didn’t I know? To my surprise there was my jar and could it be, HOT PINK!
Was my hot pink obsession, the accent color in my home, the color I’ve been drawn to my whole life, the color of my cancer? Has every road led me here? Something deep inside told me yes.
“Together We Will Find A Cure” is what my bracelet says. I have Multiple Myeloma and I want to be in this together.
I have a new hot pink bracelet, ask me about it next time you see me.
