When you hear someone has breast cancer, and you want to share a story of someone you know who has gone through it, please THINK before you speak.
If that person who you are thinking of has passed away from breast cancer, do not share it with me. I don't want to hear that.
Every cancer patient knows that we don't all make it.
Something as small and seemingly innocent as that comment, has the power to put a negative spin on my day, and I have to work extra hard to get out of this mindset.
I know that nobody intentionally goes out to do this, but sometimes, our best intentions fail and we inadvertently hurt someone we care about.
