Sid came home with a pink ribbon pinned to his uniform.
“My class and I are supporting the brave women who have breast cancer,” he announced.
As an afterthought, he added, ” You must wear one too! We all must.”
October being the ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’ month, it was heartwarming to know that awareness has reached the Primary wing at Sid’s school.
My mother lost her best friend to breast cancer last year. Early this year, she lost another friend to cancer. My friend’s mother is a fighter and has battled her way through months of treatment; she now engages in yoga to keep her body and mind fit in its aftermath.
I salute the women who have emerged fighters from the dreaded disease and continue to function in their roles and make contributions to their family and the society.
Lovely ladies, please take care of yourself. Your family needs YOU more than your services.
Take a minute to look at yourself, take an hour of your busy day for yourself- because you are worth it!
