The amazing and fantastic thing about cancer is that no one actually cares until it kills a loved one, and then they seem to care.
I would almost think it’s hard to believe in this day and age and certainly, as you get older that you have not met or been touched by someone that has been lost to this deadly and unforgiving disease. Cancer doesn’t care whether you are black, white, Christian, Muslim, American, male, or female. Cancer will take your life, it will take the life of your loved ones and it will take the life of the people you know. It is unforgiving it is the black plague of our society and kills thousands of people every year.
There are different variations of cancer as we all know and each of these has different degrees of severity and in left untreated, they will all take your life.
Tomorrow is pink ribbon Day, this is a day that brings awareness to breast cancer to encourage people to get checked and also self-check. It is also a day of fundraising which I must say and it should go without saying it is more important now than ever.
Yesterday in Canberra the motorcycle community banded together as they do around the world to support this cause. They gathered at old Parliament house and road to Bungendore while raising much-needed funds along the way. While I didn’t attend this event I have friends which did and I also have friends which are suffering from cancer which also rode in this event and it was great to hear the fun that these people had in banding together to support such a cause.
So if you can do one thing tomorrow bring awareness to breast cancer and in particular pink ribbon Day. Go to work dressed in pink, by a ribbon or just open up a conversation that hopefully will encourage people to get checked.
Help us to reach a goal and fight cancer and help us to kick cancers arse because without your help it will take the life of someone you love.
