Tonite on “Conversations Of A Sistah” What does the color PINK mean to you?

163

October 24, 2012 by The ReadyWriter


October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and since its inception more than 25 years ago, it has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer that has evolved on a national dialogue. And although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished.

Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.

In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Susan G. Komen is the boldest community fueling the best science and making the biggest impact in the fight against breast cancer. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested almost $2 billion to fulfill our promise, working to end breast cancer in the U.S. and throughout the world through ground-breaking research, community health outreach, advocacy and programs in more than 50 countries.

So what does the color pink mean for you? The pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness. Pink ribbons, and the color pink in general, identify the wearer or promoter with the breast cancer brand and express moral support for women with breast cancer. Pink ribbons are most commonly seen during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

But for those women who are survivors or live with the scars of breast cancer daily, they have to live way beyond the month of October.

Join me Thursday at 8:00 PM live on “Conversations Of A Sistah” on “Conversations Live” as we acknowledge breast cancer awareness, where my guest will be; the Rev. Mable Grier (pictured right above), who is a wife, minister, mother of four beautiful adult daughters, grandmother and breast cancer survivor six years now.

Rev. Grier is the associate pastor at her church, active in her community and abroad; and is not ashamed to share her powerful testimony as a survivor and overcomer of breast cancer. When you hear her compelling voyage, you will know, why she lives by faith!!!

Be encouraged by the story she’ll share, tune in Thursday as Rev. Grier join me on the air!!!

    Dear Tracy
    Thanks for asking I think this is a good question. I see everyone says they’re tuning into the show tomorrow but nobody answered the question.

    I have to admit that I get a bit “pinked out” particularly in October. I understand that millions of people have done a tremendous job at promoting breast cancer awareness but I kind of hate when October comes because this subject and its advertisement stay in in ya face.

    On your show tomorrow, please ask your guest positive questions (no not telling you how to conduct your show) but I’m hoping it’s a bit different and upbeat a show that I can be happy about

        What da hell do yall expect to hear? there are several clues in that post which suggest the show will be a positive one:

    ya’ll should listen to the show again: the song at the end of Tracy’s interview is so appropiate for the topic. the song is “Living Proof” by MJB

    It’s gonna be a long long journey
    It’s gonna be enough hill climb
    It’s gonna be though
    It’s gonna be some lonely nights
    But I am ready to carry on
    I am so glad the worst is over
    I can start living now
    I feel like I can do anything
    And finally I am not afraid to breath
    Anything you said to me
    And everything you do
    You can’t deny the truth
    Cause I am the living proof
    So many thoughts fight
    They just can’t make it through
    But look at me
    I am the living proof
    Oh yes I am

    Thinking about life been painful
    Yes it was
    Took a lot to learn how to smile
    So now I am gonna talk to my people about the storm
    Oh so glad the worst is over
    I can start flying now
    My best days are in front of me
    I am almost there
    Cause now I am free
    Everything you say to me
    And everything you do
    You can’t deny the truth
    Cause I am the living proof
    So many those who fight
    They just can’t make it through
    But look at me
    I am the living proof
