Category and Expertise: Editorial, Professional
Entry Description: This is Becky. I met her not very long ago and she is fighting breast cancer for a few months now. This portrait is part of the Breast Cancer Awarenessw project featuring fighters and survivors and helping to spread awareness.
Here is what she has to say:
Here it is...
I know exactly how it feels to cry in the shower so no one can hear.
I know what it's like to feel so overwhelmed that you struggle to make it through the day without falling apart.
I know the pain of hurting so bad that you just wish it would all go away.
I also know that I am stronger than what I am fighting and stronger than I ever thought I could be.
I know that I matter and that I am important.
I know that through the darkness I can see a beautiful future bursting with so much possibility.
But most of all, I know that I am awesome.
Ladies..Please do for me one
thing.. Do not waste one more day without checking your breasts. Check them now.
