Who's Tough Enough?
It's not something we like to talk about. There are some people who think it's gotten too much press, it's gone too commercial and they're sick of having it shoved in their face everyday.
The day I wanted some new measuring cups and I couldn't find what I wanted except in the color pink.
I was so annoyed!
I like the color pink don't get me wrong. But on every freakin thing?
Then there are all those annoying ladies who dress up in crazy outfits and then are some how transformed in to the loudest most loyal cheerleaders ever. They walk like maniacs, ask for money and hold countless bake sales, garage sales, and car washes.
You know who I'm talkin about
Yes you guessed it!
Breast Cancer Activists!
They are super annoying right?
I'll be the first to admit that I have talked smack about them, I have whintzed and rolled my eyes with so much annoyance that it was hard to hide when my friends said "I'm doing the Susan G Komen 3-Day walk this year"
or "lets do a fund raiser"
Well I got put in super-duper "check your shit" the other day on this subject.
I would like to introduce you to Jill
Jill and I have known each other
let's just say
Her parents were friends with my parents when they were in high school.
They are like family
Jill is a breast cancer survivor
5 years 6 months and 10 days
Yes, you know exactly how long you have been cancer free when you have
a husband and 4 kids at home depending on you.
I remember when Jill was diagnosed
She was young and her kids were all still little
It was heart breaking
All you could think was "how could this happen to someone so young? So active and always health conscious?"
It was just crazy and trying to wrap my brain around it just never happened.
Jill is one of the toughest ladies I know!
She made having breast cancer look like it was an afternoon of cocktails by the pool.
It soooooooo wasn't !
Jill's passion is horses and she has been riding since she was 5 years old.
Over the 4th of July weekend Jill was asked to ride and carry a flag in a rodeo
There's a campaign happening right now in the world of horses, rodeos, cowgirls and cowboys
It's called Are You Tough Enough To Wear Pink?
