Mommy Growing up: Let's fight breast cancer

Let's fight breast cancer

My Aunt D.
A favorite Aunt lost her battle against breast cancer. It's been ten years now but the pain of losing her still linger. She was terribly missed.

She's my mom's cousin but she was more of a second mother to me. Guiding me through school, giving me extra allowances, bringing me and my siblings to travels, buying us gifts, training us to become good businesswomen, and making our lives a bit colorful and special one. She was my beautiful, soft-spoken, sweet, hard working and big-hearted Aunt. Indeed, a favorite one. I was so blessed to have known her and to have her by our sides all those growing up years.

Diagnosed with a breast cancer, she fought the disease, real hard. She was one of the bravest. In spite of all the chemotherapy sessions, surgeries and courage to fight this deadly disease, she finally succumbed. It was so painful for all of us who fought with her and for all of us who loved her so much.

Cancer needs to be beaten.

My siblings and I on our solidarity with the cause.
