Around the world, October is designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink ribbons are ubiquitous. In the United States, even American football players can be seen showing their support—right down to using pink tape to secure their shoes.
Along with raising awareness for the disease, the month is a celebration of survivors, those who have gone through treatment and come out on the other side with renewed hope and a bright future. Consider though, if there were no survivors, or just a few. Where would that hope come from?
