breast friends.

I know this is not fashion related.
BUT we're all women, sisters, aunts, mothers and I know this has touched someone you love.
Breast Cancer.
It not only took my grandmother, but my beautiful, beautiful mother.
It will strike 1 in 7 and every 2 seconds another female is diagnosed.
SO since October is Breast Cancer awareness month I simply wanted to spread the word.
Do a charity walk. donate 5 dollars. visit a friend who just needs someone to listen to them...
I got this tattoo of a pink ribbon with love. 5 years ago. and everyday is reminds me of my angels.
Thanks for being such beautiful ladies. inside and out.
xo.

***EDIT***

You will NEVER know how much this means to me. thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I was on the walk last year. Devastating disease.
Tight hug.

Love, this is such a beautiful commemoration. I'm sure both your grandmother and mother are looking down feeling absolutely pleased with their thoughtful and beautiful daughter and grand-daughter :)

It doesn't matter that it is not directly related to fashion. It is an important issue to highlight and very fitting for this month.

My heart is with you for your losses

Susanna-Cole said...

Aw, I am so sorry you lost your grandmother and mother to breast cancer. :'( But I'm glad to see you post something like this, so we can be inspired and help raise awareness too! And this picture, though slightly sad, is so lovely too.

Aw, yeah we might just be able to set a record though, for the longest chain of back and forth compliments! ;) Really though, I've noticed I subconciously always saved you comments to reply to last, just like the whole, "Save the last for best" saying. :)

Aw, hope your finals are going okay, even though they are a drag, always, aren't they? But oh my goodness, I am a pro at procrastination, so I know the feeling! ;)

Loved hearing what you would like to see changed in the world... I agree with them all, but especially racism. If anything, I love to hang out with people of all different colors, cultures, and customs... it's so enlightening. However I sometimes am unable to connect with people of different colors and cultures, because they don't want anything to do with me. Anyway, I've actually been meaning to do an entry on racism and such...

Ok well, my toes are ice cubes now... must go hunt down my slippers! Hope you're day is going well, lovely, and the finals aren't dragging you down too bad!

xoxo,
S-C

Aw, I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom, dear. :( My aunt went through it as well. Luckily she is fine now. I just bought all of my kitchen supplies in pink (where a fine percentage goes to breast cancer research!) I love to help out any way I can.

Thanks for the lovely comments. And you, my dear, are looking lovelier than EVER! If I could, I would HUG you.... ♥

Ashleigh said...

you are so incredibly thoughtful, caring, aware and amazing. both your grandmother and mother would be so extremely proud!

my grandmother successfully battled breast cancer but it is everywhere too. i always donate to these causes and i believe as women, sisters, mothers, daughters.. we all need to fight it together :)

p.s don't you even think of replying to that email until you get all of your finals out of the way missy! no distractions!

STEFANIE said...

So sad to hear about your mother and grandmother :( It's like the disease is absolutely everywhere and we can't even stop it. I hope you are well, but I'm sure your mom & grandmother would be very proud of you! Really, I think it takes a lot of courage to talk about things so personal so openly. Wish you the best!

I am so sorry for your loss and thank you for sharing it!!! I've always believed in doing your part for community, and in this came for thy fellow women... that is why I always done and have organized couple of fundraisers for this cause when I was in high school.
There are bigger issues than fashion and should definately be discussed in blogs :)

I also wanted to let you know that award you with " I love your blog" tag ... just check out my last post:)

P.S. the tattoo is absolutely gorgeous.

Stompface said...

Sorry for your loss my sweet.
But its great that you bring up such an important issue. And great cause to always help and donate to!

My boyfriends mum has just been diagnosed, and went for her first round of chemo yesterday. It's pretty scary and surreal..

P. said...

My heart goes out to you. I, too, am losing my grandmother to breast cancer and have two friends whose mothers it has killed. If we all come together, we will find a cure.

Sunniva said...

It is a horrible, horrible disease, and it is extremely important to raise as much awareness around it as possible. You are such a beautiful person, Lisa, and by writing this important post you truly are inspiring and amazing. You are a shining light, my dear!

I'm so so sorry.

Mireia* said...

You are a lovely woman Lisa! You've made me cry....
This is a devastating disease. You can't imagine how much I hate Cancer.

My mother suffers from leucemia since last 31 October 2007. It has been my worst year but fortunatelly she is recovering quite well since they made her the marrow transplant. She is so happy now with her little granddaughter (which is 3 months old) and with her grandson that will arrive soon that I always pray she will be here with all of us so many years!

My heart is with you for your losses :(

ryder said...

Oh no lisa, im so so sorry for your grandma and mum :( ...

this is such an important topic.

im so sorry <3

nv said...

I know how you feel and thank you for spreading the word on such a great cause. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 8 and thankfully she has been cancer free since I was about 10. I'm so glad to have my mother and I want more families to be with their loved ones for a long, long time. I know your grandmother and mother would be proud. People like my mother are thankful for people like you who help find a cure.

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
