October means the start of the autumn color, but it also means Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here I am 5 years now from diagnosis, feeling better than ever! And, I had my mammogram today. It seems fitting to me to do that in October. That was my schedule before the big shake up and it's still my schedule. However, I get a little tired of BC pink, so here you have a lovely view of the Deschutes River from our mountain bike ride yesterday. It was so much fun to get out on the bikes again!
Today I finally have some time to make a breast pocket for Melanie's project. Melanie Testa, author, artist, and breast cancer survivor is trying to collect 1000 breast pockets to highlight breast cancer survivors who decide against breast reconstruction. Read more about it here. I'll post a photo when it's done. In the meantime, I challenge you to make one too. The deadline is October 22 and you can email Melanie for info on where to send them.
