Sometimes bad things happen to good people. But I've always found that the worst of times brings out the best in all of us. The day Carol got her cancer diagnosis, she began the fight for her life. And her daughters were right there with her. They shuttled her to appointments, cooked meals, and generally took care of things so their mother could focus on treatment.
One year later, Carol is in remission and continues to fight. But these days, that fight isn't for herself, it's for everybody else. Because while she's in the clear, there are millions of others who aren't. They struggle through treatment and the overwhelming roller coaster of good days, bad days and worse. These women are wives, mothers and daughters who need our united and unconditional support.
It's easy to feel helpless and hopeless. It's harder to do something. But doing something - anything - is what makes a difference. Carol told me once that it was the small things that made the biggest impact. Unexpected visitors. Homemade desserts. Even the occasional glimpse of a tiny pink ribbon that showed her that she was not alone in this fight.
"It's powerful knowing that other people, even strangers, are pulling for you," said Carol. "It doesn't seem like a big deal, but that's the kind of encouragement that turns victims into survivors."
