Happy Mother's Day to everyone who is a Mom! Today I spent my day with my favorite moms; my Mom, my Grandma, and my sister, mommy to be, Sarah. To think last year I didn't know when or if I would be a mom, and this Mother's Day I am 22 weeks pregnant with a little, precious, healthy girl! Next year will be even better, I will be watching my little girl crawl around and play with her new cousin! I cannot wait!
So how can I promise to be there for my little girl? I must stay strong and take care of myself, mentally and physically! I made a Promise to Me to do so. Many of you know ironically I work for Hologic, a women's health company which, among other things, specializes in breast cancer detection instruments and radiation treatment options. Hologic has started the Promise to Me project and I feel strongly about this simple goal, to have every strong woman make the promise to take care of their health!
It is very simple, click here http://www.promisetome.com/ and take the Promise to Me. At 34 I never thought I would be dealing with cancer but as you all know, you are NEVER too young. NOW is the time to start taking control of your health and your future. Make the promise to take care of yourself and get your yearly medical exams. Between yearly exams, give yourself monthly breast exams. It is up to us strong women to teach our daughters and tell our friends how simple yearly exams and monthly checks can help us remain strong and be there for others.
To the men in my life; my husband, fathers, brother-in-laws, uncles, cousins, guy friends and any man out there; if you love a strong woman, have a mother, wife, girlfriend or daughter, be a strong man and tell them to take care of themselves so that they can be there for you for a long time.
If you are reading this it is because you are some way a part of my life. Whether you are a close friend or a friend of a friend, you are important to me and as much as I hope I will be in your life for a long time, I hope you will also be there and healthy for me. If for no other reason but to be there for me in the future, make the simple Promise to Me today! Happy Mother's Day and I love you all! xoxo
