Get Involved, Show Your Support- World Cancer Day


It's World Cancer day. I had no clue that they actually had a day devoted to cancer. Are we expected to celebrate? I hope you use to this day to schedule your screenings and do a self breast exam. I will never forget the day I heard those three words “You have cancer”I long for the day when no one else has to hear it.

Welcome to my home on the web... I’m Tomika, the thought leader behind Life in Pumps. I love all things fashion, fun & travel! I’m a wife and mother of two very active teenagers. I'm a social butterfly and passionate about advocating for breast cancer disparities and the benefits of organics. Follow along as I believe life is more fun when you actually live it!

    Cancer has affected so many people in my family. I’m glad that there’s a World Cancer Day to promote awareness and screenings! And you are right, self breast exams are very important.

    Have a great day! I’m visiting from the SITS Comment Love party!

    My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in November. She had a bilateral mastectomy in December and I am doing my best to help with what I can 2000 miles away! I just finished making some head scarfs for her, and I am looking forward to sewing pillowcases for kids with cancer at the end of the month. Cancer sucks!

  5. Those are words no one should have to bear the weight of hearing. Thanks for announcing this special day!

  6. It’s definitely not a day to celebrate cancer, but maybe a good time to celebrate the support communities, raise awareness and celebrate the strength of those who suffer with it.

  7. Skin cancer is very common in our family. Such a good reminder to stay on top of checkups!
