Remembering a sister's courage during Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This morning I read something that made me cry. While I can be an emotional person, it's not often that I'm moved to tears.

 

Today, one of our Legacy.com team members posted on our Legacy.com company blog a reflection on Breast Cancer Awareness Month and what it means to her. Sue lost her sister to breast cancer a few years ago and in the post she pays tribute to her sister's courage and strength. I can't sum it up any better than she did, so I'll leave you with Sue's words:

 

My sister Debbie battled breast cancer for five years before she died at the age of 42. Her three daughters were 7, 11 and 18. For me the pink ribbon logo is more than just a reminder of another woman taken much too young. It signifies the strength she showed in those five years. Our society tends to portray women as the more delicate gender. But when faced with a fight for their lives, women can be fiercely strong.

 

Read the full post on the @Legacy blog, then tell us how you remember or honor loved ones who have lived with or died from cancer.
