October has always been a reflective month for me.
For one, many family members share birthdays this month (more about this in next week’s Sunday Stills challenge).
Secondly, I enjoy the visible weather changes in October, with Autumn finally making a more-than-vague appearance, the cooler days and sometimes cold nights, and the overall feeling that another year is winding down.
October also has me hyper-aware that it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, although I haven’t seen as many professional sports teams adding pink to their uniforms much this year.
One in eight women will contract breast cancer in their lifetime. That means realistically for every eight women you see walking down the road, one of them could be either a survivor or currently battling breast cancer. Something else a lot of men may not know is, while rare, it is possible for men to contract breast cancer. Roughly around 2600 men will be diagnosed this year.https://bellyupsports.com/2019/09/pink-impact-in-professional-sports/
In my small way, I dedicate this post to those who have succumbed and those who have survived. And both lists are long.
Enjoy my pink images inspired by the pink ribbon that represents hope for the cure.
The last blooms of my pink plumeria…
A bee enjoying the nectar of a pink flower…
Even the Autumn leaves blush pink for October…
And a pink sunset to inspire yet another day for breast cancer survivors.
I look forward to you all filling up the pages of WordPress with your pink images!
I am due for my mammogram this month. Off I go.
