October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Just in case you don't know...October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I have to admit I was very ignorant before this and same goes with my sister, Afdera...we always thought that we will be forever healthy and never bother to do any medical check up.

Not until 2007 when our eldest sister, Mariana was diagnosed with Breast Cancer Stage 3. Our very first reaction when we were told of this did that happen? Nobody in our family has any history of did she get this??...The answer is plain & don't need to have any family history in order to be diagnosed with Breast Cancer. It all lies in the food that you eat...!!!

She had to go through the necessary operation, chemotherapy & radio therapy and was under huge medication. It's been 3 years already and if you had a chance to see her now you will be surprise to note how healthy & lively she look. Nobody will even know or realise that she is actually a cancer survivor.

I want to share with you an article she wrote in the Star newspaper.

She is also featured in October Month Women's Weekly Magazine (Malaysian Edition)

To all of you ladies...if you have been as ignorant as I was before...well...wake up...go for your medical check up. If you have family members or maybe you yourselves are currently diagnose with cancer...please read my sister's may give you some motivation or strength...InsyaAllah...!!

I hope this sharing helps....!!!
